Repeat liver tests: Two weeks after discontinuing medication and alcohol. If still up, you'll get worked up for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, and a few others. This may simply be your body's way of asking for more exercise.

Not related: Your kidney stone is not related to your abnormal liver enzyme tests(LFT).There are many different conditions that can cause abnormal LFTs such as infections (hepatitis,etc),medications (statins,etc), autoimmune diseases,alcohol intake,and infiltrating diseases of the liver.Ask your Doctor for a liver ultrasound to start with and reviewing your medications, then referral to a gastroenterologist.
