Neither: It means you either had rubella as a child or that you were vaccinated.

I consider it good: It generally means you are immune from Rubella and cannot get or spread the disease.

In rubella test IgG reactive is her result , is it good or bad?

Likely good: IgG to rubella rises if you have had the disease or the vaccine in the past. A high IgM level would mean there is active or a recent (months) infection. If you have a protective ( high) IgG rubella titer you never have to worry about getting rubella during pregnancy and that disease hurting the baby (real bad stuff).

That antibody level: is good. It signifies immunity to Rubella (German measles). Generally these days, it means that the vaccine a person had was effective. It can also be elevated after a natural infection.
