In brief: Normal

thyroid function appears to be normal currently.
given that your thyroid antibody is positive, you are at a higher risk of eventually becoming hypothyroid. That doesn't mean you will definitely become hypothyroid though. monitor this every 6 months with your doctor.

And be sure your doctor is aware of this should you become pregnant because the antibodies can cross the placenta

In brief: Depends on units

"Concerned?" Absolutely -- enough to accept treatment for what I suspect is mild Hashimoto's with some hypothyroidism (low T3 (liothyronine) and T4, normal TSH) if this is micrograms per deciliter for the first two and U/L for the TSH.
Anti-TPO is an antibody directed against the thyroid. This stuff is very common and you'll need to accept treatment if you want to keep your health.

Various labs have various reference ranges. If the thyroid function tests are in the normal range, simply watch -- you have some chance of developing clinically significant autoimmune thyroiditis.
