Your liver enzymes are not alarmingly high, but these are definitely abnormal and you should get a full check up by a hepatologist, to make sure you do not have any other underlying liver disease. You should be tested for viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C), autoimmune liver diseases, iron overload, and other causes of liver disease.
Fatty liver is definitely a concern, and losing weight and controlling lipids usually helps. Avoid alcohol.
