Hi and welcome to HCM.
You shouldnt be worried at all.You are young and you should be afraid of some serious disease. These tests showed only slightly elevated bilirubin and ALT.A bilirubin level of 1.4 is nothing to be concerned about,it can be caused by temporary liver damage or haemolysis. You just need to do frequent check ups and change your dietary habbits. I wouldnt even prescribe any medicines. You should avoid alcohol for some time. If elevated LFT persist then some genetic and methabolic disorders can be considered, but the best thing to do is to wait and see. Nothing will happen in a short period.
WIsh you good health.
