In brief: ? Iron deficiency

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.
Having said that, you appear to have mild iron deficiency. You may take oral iron supplement available over the counter. Take the pills with meals and if you develop constipation, take a fiber laxative.
