Thank you for the query.

If all tests are negative and the only one increased is indirect bilirubin you most likely suffer from Gilberts syndrome. This is genetic condition where the bilirubin can not be conjugated by the liver due to enzyme defect. This condition is harmless and does not need further action. I suggest you to check your bilirubin again in few months.

Hope this will help.
