Depends: Hi. Are those glucoses serum or finger stick? Only serum glucose is approved for diagnosis. If the 105 is a serum glucose, it's not normal. It should be repeated to see if it's reproducible. If it's a reproducible serum glucose, you have impaired fasting glucose. Is the 116 part of a glucose tolerance test after a defined glucose challenge? If so, it is normal. We can't say without more details.
