Find cause: If your eyes are yellow and your bilirubin is up then you are jaundiced. Folks with gilbert's non-disease get a bit jaundiced if they miss a few meals; if indirect bilirubin has been up before & all else is okay you've probably got gilbert's. Trust you are not hemolyzing (cbc & smear normal) and nothing else points to illness.
