Yes you are definitely a diabetic. Please meet your doctor immediately for a prescription of oral hypoglycemic drugs. Your blood levels are within the range to be treated with tablets
Take the following precautions

1. Avoid foods rich in sugar and carbohydrates like sweets, rice, banana, guava, etc
2. Take care of your feet, wear diabetic slippers and always keep them well moiturized and dry
3. Take your meals regularly
4. Lose weight and go for walking 5 times a week minimum of 30 min each time

Have a nice day
