My total protein was at 8.7 and my albumin was at 5.1, what can this mean ?

My blood work recently showed that my total protein was at 8.7 and my albumin was at 5.1, what can this mean ? My total protein is normally at 7.4 and albumin is normally 5.0, but this bloodwork did not show my globulin level..I also had a nasal swab which showed acinetobacter lwoffi and I keep getting sores in my nose what does this indicate as well.. thank you
