In brief: Get serology first,,

Before you even think of getting vaccinated it'd be good to get a serologic result to see if you've already been exposed and made antibodies to hep a, b or the other hepatitis viruses.
You might have contracted one of them without knowing it. Next, more liver tests/other tests would be needed to find out why your enzymes are elevated. You might have gone to an area endemic for malaria, etc..
