Need more info: There is not a very high correlation between the level of amniotic fluid and fetal well-being. If the baby is growing well, moving well, and you were doing well with normal weight gain etc. Then the likelihood of there being a problem is low. You should however discuss the whole range of possibilities with your obstetrician.
