hep B test reading

hi,
I had blood test few days ago and the result says I am hep B positive. Please can some one identify my case - by reading my test result?? I would like to know whether I am carrier or chronic or immune(if i get lucky). Here is my result
Hep B surface antigen - Non reactive
Hep B core antibody -Positive
Hep B surface antibody - 985
thank you!

It appears to me that you are immune due to past infection.

you dont have hep b and you are not positive to hep b . your surface antigen (which is the virus itself) is non reactive/ negative.

you have positive antibodies which suggest immune due to natural infection.
