Mysterious fever: A low grade temperature without any mention of symptoms indicate that you were treated unnecessarily with antibiotics there is no need for you to proceed any further.

No: If this is the highest your temperature reaches each day it would be considered within the normal temperature range. If you feel well it would not require any diagnostic tests or treatment. If any tests to be done would limit them to CBC and crp.
