In brief: TSH

Of 34 may indicate a need for increasing Levothyroxine dose in consultation with an Endocrinologist.
The rest of the functions will be affected by your TGB level as well as the Synthroid you are taking

In brief: Repeat test

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, your doctor may want to repeat the test, to ensure that TSH is reproducibly elevated.
