I recently had an out break of some kind. My HSV IgG 1 and 2 both .90 came back negative but my HSV IgM came back positive 1.09. What does this mean?

In brief: IgM vs IgG

Igm shows an acute infection with the hsv virus.
After clearance of the hsv (typically) the body will have a positive igg which simply shows previous infection.
