you probably have a condition known as Gilbert’s syndrome which causes a mild elevation in bilirubin when you are dehydrated . It is an inherited condition when your liver produces bilirubin and is usually discovered accidentally when routine blood work is done. It requires no treatment and is of no major concern.
