In brief: Nothing

If you have a positive test for hepatitis b antibodies, it means you have been exposed to the virus and had an immune reaction to it; or, you were vaccinated, and have an immune reaction to the viral components in the vaccine.
It does not mean you are infected with the virus; that would require a positive hepatitis b antigen test.
