blood work back- looks like chest pain related to infection of some kind

I got my bloodwork back. my crp was 8, which means a high risk of heart attack, or infection with a cold, flu, etc. my iron values were all low. My hemoglobin was 10.4 (normal 11.7 - 15.5). my feeling is that my body had an infection and was restricting the absorption of iron so as not to feed bacteria growing from the infection. what kind of bacteria? h. pylori overgrowth? anyway, my lipid values were excellent: total cholesterol 190, HDL 88, LDL 92, tri's 51. in a month i will be tested again for crp, iron, and vitamin d level (if my insurance will pay for it).
