In brief: Repeat, follow up
Depends on the test.
Some have different limits of what can be measured. Make sure you're comparing apples to apples. When in doubt, repeat and follow up.

In brief: Ask questions
There are multiple different tests for hepatitis c.
Some check for past exposure, while others check for active disease. Still others test for the"type"of hepatitis c and how susceptible it may be to medications.
