In brief: Not enough info

These numbers do not look alarming.
However, to measure your response to sugar loads, you need to have a standardized and defined sugar load. Your numbers might vary depending on the nature of the meal you ate. These will often vary if you are pregnant or not. You should let your doctor check this for you in a standard way.

Your numbers looks not bad at all.
To judge it better do what is known as 3 hours glucose tolerance test with standartised glucose load. High likelihood you will get normal result.
