In brief: Matter of time
Low iron saturations could indicate the beginning of iron deficiency.
However, the body stores quite a bit of iron in the form of ferritin, and it's not until the stores become depleted that the bone marrow starts to become unable to produce red blood cells like it's supposed to.
