Those findings are common during acute infection, you have nothing to worry.

Bilirubin i in urine does not necessarily mean liver damage- besides your LFT were normal. Azithromycin in proper dosage and for short periods does not cause liver damage. PL stop doing these tests on your own as they cause unnecessary anxiety
