Usually reactive: Dynamics and context are critical. Relatively common finding, best interpreted by ordering doc in the context it was checked.

Would possibly need to be repeated and see what the trend is and need for review.

Need more info: 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 if you had provided the actual value. Iron deficiency is a common cause. Take oral iron and multivitamins. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!

Would need review: It depends what the context was that the blood was taken. It can be a reactive rise in cases of infection and possibly would need to repeat it to see trend and if still raised would need further investigation.
