Brief Answer:
Not to worry, but needs lifestyle modification

Detailed Answer:
LDL level is certainly on higher side, rest is normal.
Blood pressure is borderline, you need to monitor it.
There is no need to worry much about it but we should take a preventive steps as in long term it does slightly increases the risk of blockages in the heart. It does not lead to any harm in short term. At this stage, no medicines is required for it and needs lifestyle modification for 6 months and then repeating it to look for trend.
You should have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty, oily and high calorie diet. Have low salt diet and monitor blood pressure regularly thrice a day for one week then once or twice a week. If bp is persistently more than 140/90 mmhg, then you may aggressive measures and medicines. Regular exercises like brisk walking, jogging according your capacity atleast 30 min a day and 5 days a week. Lots of green leafy vegetables, fruits, fish once or twice a week, avoid meat. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. You can visit the dietician and get a diet plan for low fat diet, including total fat less than 30% of total calories, saturated fat less than 10 and trans fat less than 1. Avoid fast food as well. There shouldn't abdominal fat deposition or obesity. Get your lipid profile after 6 months.
So at this stage no damage is done, and no need to worry provided we take preventive action. So get back if you have any further doubts.

I am a vegetarian and eat a mainly organic diet. I recently got a lipids panel done and my triglycerides are high (mid-200s) and my HDL is low (29). I know high triglycerides will lower HDL. How do I get my triglycerides down considering I don't eat animal fats, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, etc. I do eat a lot of whole grains, but how much is too much?

I have heard, to lose weight, I should stay under 30 grams of fat per day. Does this mean total fat or just saturated fat? If I eat a small 100 calorie bag of almonds it says 9 grams of total fat. Does this mean that small bag contains 1/3 of my total fat for the day, or are polys and monos not included in that 30 gram count?

I am interesting in natural bodybuilding (without steroids) and i have a question. Can i eat as many good fats like polyunsaturated and monounsaturated as i want? I want my meals to be as balanced as it gets. Let's say that i need 600 kcal per meal and i have already calculated my carbs, protein and fats. But my meal is missing calories so my question is: Can i add more fats (because that nutrient has the most calories) to fit my calorie needs?
