In brief: Are you sick?

Rubella igm can stick around indefinitely after your immunization, or be a false-positive.
I would stop worrying. Rubella is a terrible disease when it affects the unborn child, and it is still very much with us as evidenced by outbreaks in europe due to lack of immunization.
