What do my results mean hcv ab test

hi i  just check up  my  anti-HCV tests (no risk factor no blood transmission )
first  HCV AB ELISA 3 RD GEN : weak positive
i got another lab used Rapid Test  result : negative
i go to hospital and get  all hepatitis viral markers  and the result is
HCV AB negative
HBsA negative

As long as you dont/didnt have any exposure to HCV infected blood, Id say your golden...but if its going to be in the back of your mind...I guess it wouldn't hurt to get retested...but It would just be for peace of mind.

About the influenza thing...Ive never heard of that being a reason for false positive tests.
