Can anyone help me understand my cholestoral level? Thank you!

I recently had a range of blood tests taken and the one of the results came back with a highlight against my cholestoral level. It is 5.9 with a CDV risk of 2%. Does anyone know if this is this something I should be concerned about? I am 46, female, not overweight, take regular daily exercise. I can't understand why my reading is high.

Well 5.9 isn't super high and it depends upon other factors such as family history and LDL/ HDL ratio......
