My test was negative for anti nuclear antibody and 40 u/ml for cyclic citrullinated peptide. Does this mean I have ra?

In brief: No

The presence of a + ccp is seen in RA but it is not diagnostic of ra.
The diagnosis of RA will depend on your evaluation by your physician.

In brief: No

The ccp is just one of multiple criteria for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis although it is highly suggestive of the diagnosis.
