Are slightly elevated bilirubin levels indicative of liver issues?

No, it is not a significant change
The units that of the results are not mentioned.
Normal total bilirubin levels are approximately (change slightly from one lab to the other)-- 0.1 to 1.2 mg/dl (2 to 20 micromol/l).
Your value of 1.3 is only just above the range of 0.1 to 1.2 mg/dl, which are a most likely range that you are dealing with.
It would not be considered a significant change
Bilirubin is not interpreted on its own but with other liver tests like the liver enzymes- AST, ALT, alkaline phos, GGT.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
No, no need to worry
No, you should not be concerned because the level is not significantly high.
There are no medical conditions that would affect you with this slight increase.
The Naproxen should not have played a role in the results.
Please feel free to ask anything else.
Hope I have answered your query.
