Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
HI and welcome. I don't think this is an urgent condition but you should check your liver markers more often in future. If this is just bright yellow then this may just be sign of certain diet. But if this is pale then this is possible sign of liver disorder and you should check liver enzymes in this case. Of course, considering that you have fatty liver you should avoid alcohol and have easier diet in future. Wish you good health. Regards
