In brief: Fairly good but...

You have a fairly healthy profile except for a low HDL of 36.
Make sure you are at your ideal body weight.If there is anything you can do to improve your diet and your triglyceride do so.If you don't have a strong family history of heart disease and do not smoke, I am not sure that there is a strong indication for statins.Coronary calcium score is useful to define risk and help decide about statin.
