positive SMA with normal liver functions

I am a 36 yo female with crohn's. My medications are Humira q14 days, started 1 year ago.  5 months ago, I had 1 week of night sweats fatigue and a butterfly rash. I still have the rash (mildly) and the fatigue (feel like I haven't had a good night sleep.  Thought it was from the Humira.My GI said he doubt's it is from the humira, but did all the lupus tests all which came back negative, except for the a-SMA. It is weakly positive at 1:40. My liver functions are completely normaland have always been completely normal.  I have a history of being on Immuran for about 7 years, which was not ideal in controlling my Crohn's, hense starting Humira.  What does this a-SMA really mean.  Do I have autoimmune hepatitis, will I develop it or will I be lucky and not develop it?
