Hi there,
Most of the cases of hepatitis B cure spontaneously and may not require treatment. A repeat test after 6 months may help in detecting whether you have cleared the virus or if the infection is persisting. Antiviral drugs are useful in treating chronic hepatitis B infection. Antiviral therapy is not appropriate for everyone with chronic HBV infection and is indicated for people whose infection is most likely to progress to active hepatitis or cirrhosis. The decision to start treatment depends on liver function tests, HBV DNA tests, and  liver biopsies after a complete history and physical examination The decision for starting antiviral medications is usually taken in consultation with a hepatologist.Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
