Before you interpret any investigation you should know age of the person and sex (Male or Female) .
also what for investigation is done that means it is always correlated clinically.

Hemoglobin 13.9gm% is in normal range WBC count and differential count is normal, Serum iron and ferritin level with in normal range, TIBC is slightly higher than normal usually seen in Iron deficiency anemia but reference range may vary from Lab to Lab.

Please see your Physician and he will interpret and explain to you details.
Good Luck.
