No: Only if you are having symptoms. These percentages jump around all the time. They are almost never the same from one day to the next. Heck....One hour to the next.

How high: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it would have helped had you provided the actual counts.
