In brief: Check liver tests

Since the symptoms you describe are not specific for liver disease, i recommend that you see your doctor to get liver function tests done.
If abnormal, you may need an ultrasound or additional imaging to see if there is a cause for this increased value. On the other hand, if normal, other reasons should be sought, including allergic reactions, e.g. Food allergies, etc.
