Your lab test you reported have nothing to do with one either having Hep C or not, sometimes a "weak positive" is a false positive. What your doctor should have done is order a RNA PCR to check for a viral load before making a statement like he/she did as if you are positive there is about a 25% chance you only have the antibodies in which case you do not have Hep C... Good luck and have the PCR.

Thank you for comment. I went to another hospital and they also done Anti HCV (screen test). The doctor only told me that I  have some small problem in  liver, high enzyme and they took my blood again for more tests.
