You are positive for HSV 1 .

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in "Ask a Doctor".
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have seen carefully your attached results.Based on these you should know that you are positive for HSV 1 that usually cause oral herpes and this means that you have been in contact with this virus.Most of people have a HSV 1 IgG positive.
Furthermore, it is a good news that you are negative for HSV 2 ( cause genital herpes).

Hope I have answered your query.
