You seemed to have a hep C antibody quantitative, not qualitative test (positive or negative result) but the result did not specify positive or negative; however, it may show a reference range. Please note that false positive (positive test but no disease) hep C antibody is quite common so you need to have hep C RNA PCR done to rule out chronic hepatitis C infection.
