In brief: It depends/clarify,,

Your tibc and uibc are in range while your iron and ferritin are not.
Depending on your reference ranges for the lab, they should be 50-170 ug/dL or 9.0-30.4 umol/L for iron in females and 15-150 ug/dL for ferritin in females. The hemoglobin is also somewhat low though not much. These would point to a deficiency of iron in the blood. More tests are needed to see if this is iron anemia.
