What.does hbv DNA positive mean?chronic or acute

Either

Hepatitis_b
Hepatitis B virus DNA means that there is presence of the virus in your body. This can be found in both acute and chronic hepatitis. If your liver enzymes are elevated in low numbers or normal and you have no symptoms such as jaundice, nausea/vomiting, changes in stool/urine color and a positive test, most likely HBV is chronic. High liver function tests, bilirubin counts + symptoms = acute HBV.

I had a negative ANA test but positive double stranded DNA test Do I have lupus?

Not enough data

Antinuclear_antibody_(ana)
The diagnosis of luppus is made on the basis of clinical signs and symptoms confirmed by specific lab tests including the DNA antibody. This antibody can also be positive in other auto immune diseases. Since you did not mention symptoms, there is no way to answer your question.

My double stranded DNA is 6 which is "indeterminate" what does "indeterminate" mean when it comes to this test?

DNA

Herpes_virus
There is no such thing DNA 6. Are you taking about Human Herpes Virus 6 DNA detection test. If so, indeterminate means antibody titer is neither positive nor negative. It is falling in the grey zone.
