Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Your fasting and Random blood sugars both are with in normal reference range. However, your Fasting blood sugar lies in the range of Pre-Diabetes.
But these values fluctuate and depends on the meals that you had taken recently.
I would suggest you following:
1. Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels, that will tell your average blood sugar of last 3 months.
2. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test.

However, in general, you should avoid taking high carbohydrate and high fat diet. Avoid taking banana, XXXXXXX potato, rice, alcohol, high sugar items , sweets, Cold drinks.
At this stage and age, exercising daily and a modest weight reduction would help you a lot.
Revert with HbA1c report. Also, if you can afford get a Fasting Lipid Profile done.

This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
