In brief: Probably so

You have subclinical hypothyroidism.
Treatment is warranted. I would first address factors that indirectly affect thyroid function such as diet, vitamin deficiencies, other hormone imbalances (e.g. Estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue), etc. If you have deficiency in iodine, selenium, vitamin d, iron, etc, your thyroid will be affected. Vitamin deficiencies are common.
