Brief Answer:
Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for uploading the report.
Both your ALT and ALP are only mildly raised.
They are raised less than two times the upper limit of normal.
Fatty liver disease is the most likely cause.

Your cholesterol and TGL are mildly raised and they are risk factors for fatty liver disease.
An ultrasound scan of the abdomen may be done to rule out fatty liver disease.
Also get tested for hepatitis B and C.
