I gone through the reports. From what I can understand is that your kid has Anemia.

Probable Reason: Iron deficiency and Beta thalassemia trait

Since it is only a trait your kid may not suffer the full disease. However do consult a pediatric hematologist. I see that you are in Maharastra there are good Pediatric Hematology institutes in Mumbai.

Don't worry. Just don't give any vitamin D containing supplements and do limit sun exposure
