In brief: No worry

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.
Having said that, the slightly high RDW is no cause for concern. You may wish to take oral iron supplements as women tend to be iron deficient due to menstrual blood loss. Your test results are okay.
