Hepatitis C Antibodies

  Hello,
  I have a few questions.
  1. I have had a hepatitis C Antibody test it came back as Reactive Verified by repeat analysis...What exactly does this mean?? does it mean its a positive result??
  2. I also had a PCR-RNA by qualitative and it came back Not Detected does this mean at this time? or the simple fact is that I do not have the virus?
  3. does these results tell you that i do have the virus? or maybe a carrier? whats the difference between having the virus and just the carrier and having the antibodies.
  thank you,
