Hi Deanna,
Prolactin levels are very sensitive to any kind of stress. Even stress of taking blood for analysis will cause prolactin elevation. If you don't have any other symptoms, you can ignore it. If you are very anxious OR if you are having symptoms like headache, nausea vomiting etc. you can consult endocrionologist.
Wish you good health.
