Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The cholesterol report you have is high on borderline.This is a very mild rise of unwanted lipids.You can definitely control them by proper exercise and low fat diet.Do not worry much about but be cautious on following good diet and exercise.Get them checked after 3 months and if they are still high , you can opt taking a tablet which reduces bad cholesterol like statins.

Take care.
