It is not clear from your post the test that you had performed. I guess it is:
Prothrombin time , and the ratio that you mentioned is the INR.
From Wikipedia:
"The prothrombin time (PT) and its derived measures of prothrombin ratio (PR) and international normalized ratio (INR) are measures of the extrinsic pathway of coagulation. This test is also called "ProTime INR" and "INR PT". They are used to determine the clotting tendency of blood, in the measure of warfarin dosage, liver damage, and vitamin K status"
PT/INR are a measure of liver function, too high or two low value should be investigated. Consult your doctor.
