Hi Nidha. Thanks for using health care magic.

Elevation of SGOT/SGPT in your case can be explained b either of the two possibilities.

1. Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis - Accumulation of fat in liver which can occur in many people to varied cause - Overweight, certain medications, Diabetes, Unknown Cause.
Best treatment for this is regular exercise and weight loss.

2. Autoimmune Hepatitis - As our ANA is weakly positive (Seen in Autoimmune Conditions)

I recommend you to get your ANA test reconfirmed. If its positive you need further detailed evaluation to find out if you have any autoimmune disease.
Hope this clears our query.

Do get back if you have any further doubts

Thanks and Regards,
Dr Kiran
