Hello. Welcome to HCM.
Presence of elevated hepatic enzymes along with right upper abdominal pain indicate that probably some form of hepatic pathology is present. In addition mild weight loss is present. To find out the cause and treat it, you need to have additional tests like hepatic viral markers, other enzyme status (ALP, GGT). It is mandatory to have ultrasound and still if everything is normal, you should have CT scan.
Take care.
