In brief: Hematocrit

You hematocrit is too high (over 44% for a woman).
This can be caused by dehydration or polycythemia vera. This test needs to be repeated. You also need to be evaluated for infection. A urinalysis and culture would be a good start, as well as possibly imaging of the abdomen by ultrasound or CT.
