Hep b-sAg reactive, core and antibodies nonreative, what does it mean?

I was tested for hep B and Hep C. With hep B the sAg (surface antigen) was reactive. They did further tests but everything came back negative or nonreactive. The hep core and antibodiea both came back non reactive as did the hep C.  The doctors say that I'm fine and nothing to worry about but I still feel uneasy. I got tested a second time and results came up the same. The levels were >0.01

Your post is not very clear. If you have repeated the test for HBsAg and they came back Negative(or Non-reactive), then you don't need to worry. The number such as  0.01 is not relevant, they are related to the assays used to test your blood and do not represent actual quantity of HBsag.
