In brief: Depends.

The ANA is a very nonspecific test.
It can be elevated in a wide variety of illnesses and in health. If you have no symptoms an ANA will not give you a disease. If it is very high titer ANA it is worth following you for development of symptoms that might lead to diagnosis or further testing.
