Welcome to HCM,
If the readings are correct for FBS and PPBS then you are definitely diabetic as FBS>125 mg and PPBS > 200 mg/dl is criteria for diabetes.
Your first reading is random blood sugar which is 165 mg/dl, that is why we conform by FBS and PPBS if you have any doubt please get test repeated from good Lab and then take proper treatment from Physician and also take care of your toothache if it is badly diseased it may require extraction under antibiotic cover.
Please do not worry fluctuations in blood sugar level do occur.
Take care
Good Luck.
