Mild raised calcium : At this minimally raised calcium without bone pain, constipation, psychosis, I would repeat the test within 4-6 weeks.

First and most : COMMON reason for this mild elevation in Calcium is DIETARY! How much milk/dairy food do you consume?? A repeat study after you have avoided high calcium intake is the next "step"! Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
