Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
HI

Greetings from Dr.Divakara.P
Thanks for posting your query.

It is a very mild elevation and doesn't indicate any serious problem. It can get elevated due to simple viral infection , intake of any medicine including a pain killer . So in my opinion there is nothing to worry about this .

I would recommend you to repeat the test after 3 weeks , just to check whether it has gone back to normal ( High chances ) or it has increased ( very less chances)

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.

Regards.
