Maybe?: None of these labs tests rules anything out or in. Tumors and GI bleeding are generally suspected by history / symptoms and simple exam. Lab data can help confirm but the labs you show wouldn't confirm anything.

Hb and ferritin low: The hemoglobin and ferritin are low, and low-normal, respectively. I would do an evaluation for blood loss in the stool. For a female who is menstruating, menstrual blood losses can contribute to this. At age 57, it could be still menstruation (unlikely), or more likely GI blood losses.
