Liver inflammation: This is a sign that something is being hard on your liver. This in a non-drinker usually represents being oversight or taking too much tylenol (acetaminophen). Hepatitis usually causes more elevation of these numbers.

Elevated transamines: Sgpt ; SGOT (or ast ; alt) are mildly elevated. These liver enzymes are called transamines, i will assume the rest of your liver panel is normal. There is a very long list of things that cause this including some common medications (tylenol, ibuprofen, etc), iron overload, acute virus, chronic hepatitis b or c, thyroid disease, nonalcoholic "fatty liver".... See your physician for a full work up.
