Thanks for the query.
Brief answer...your ESRlevels are absolutely normal.
Detailed answer...
Such a mild rise of ESR has no meaning.
ESR has meaning,if levels are above 100 or if these values are consistently and constantly rising.In your case it is mildly elevated and is at a constant level and hence there is no need to pay any attention to it.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query,
Best of luck
