Tests showed positive for alcohol, low creatinine, high LDL, triglycerides level. Suggestions?

Hello Dr, I m in a extreme panicky and cunfued state and I hope you can give me some advice. I have been with a certain Pain and Wellness doctors for just over 6 years and have just received a letter telling me I m being discharged immediately. What happened was a couple of times ago when i went to see my doctor, she was unavailable and i had someone different. Anyway she could smell alcohol on my breath and refused to treat me, which is 100% understandable as she doesnt know me and the drink was a one off as i went to lunch with a girlfriend just before. Anyhows i then went to see my usual docot the following week. In the mean time i didnt drink anything at all. I m not a real drinker, just a glass of red wine now and again. My real doc did some blood work and it came up positive for alcohol. I had some Nyquil night before so i dont know if that was it. Also it said my urine had an unusually low creatinine level?? I m really confused and scared as Im on 6 hydrocones pd and 3 100mg morphine . Please give me some advice. Also Tryglycerides were 140 and LDL Cholesterol was 116????

it is hard to understand how your blood sample is tested positive for alcohol when you have not taken it.Please consult your doctor to see what is the reason of this abnormality.
Your levels of triglyceride and cholesterol are not very high although you can reduce your saturated fat intake to decrease the the LDL levels.
