Ha1c is 5.7. Because this is nearing the upper limit, does that mean I may be more predisposed to diabetes than someone with a reading of say 5.0?

In brief: Multiple factors

such as your BMI or body mass index, family history of diabetes, diet and exercise habits come into play.
One measurement, the Hgb AiC, although important, should be taken in context with the other factors. Hope this helps.
