It means that you are infected with hbv or you have cleared the virus.
HepB Core Antibody Total = HepB Core IgM Antibody + HepB Core IgG Antibody.

If HepB Core IgG Antibody is reactive, than you are in a chronic state or you had an infection in the past, which was resolved by your immune system.
If HepB Core IgM Antibody is reactive, than you are in an acute state, which is an 95% chance to be cured (IgG must be nonreactive, otherwise you are in chronic active phase).

Test yourself for HBsAg antigen and for HBsAb antibody (Anti-HBs) to view if you're infected or you cleared the virus in the past.

HBsAg negative and HBsAb reactive - means that you cleared the virus.
HBsAg reactive and HBsAb negative - means that you are infected with the virus (in this case HepB Core IgM and IgG tells you if you're in the acute or chronic state).
