If you are detected to be HbsAg positive first we need to confirm the test with ELISA. If is positive there a few things we need to check first before we prescribe medications for the same. You need to get done the following tests
1. IgM anti HbcAg
2. HBeAg
3. Anti HbeAg
4. IgG anti HBcAg

You also need to undergo an ultrasound and Liver function tests. You also need to have your family members checked for HbsAg and have them take HBsAg vaccine if they are negative.
