Do you also have hsv1? Have you ever had genital herpes symptoms?
I'd do a retest, just to be sure. There is some debate about this in the field, but many experts feel that anything under a 3.5 should be confirmed, especially with pre-existing hsv1, but yours was pretty close to that, which would make it less likely to be a false positive.
