Brief Answer:
You have iron deficiency.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. i can understand your concern.
Your serum iron level is decreased, Your iron binding capacity is increased with low transferrin saturation.
Your all findings are suggestive of iron deficiency.

You should take iron rich diet like dates, green leafy vegetables, dry fruits, jeggary etc.

You can take oral iron supplements tablets like ferrous sulfate or ferrous fumarate.
Or you can take injectable iron like iron sucrose or iron dextran.

You should also go for ultrasound abdomen/ endoscopy to check any bleeding from gastrointestinal tract.

Consult your doctor and start treatment accordingly.
