AST and Iron Levels after binge drinking

I want to decrease my drinking levels and needed (i guess) more motivation to stop the binge drinking. I just had blood work completed yesterday (Monday) and my results came back today with higher than normal AST/SGOT and Iron,serum levels.

Mainly: Would high binge drinking on Saturday affect how high my AST and Iron levels were if I took my blood work the following Monday? Or would these measurements only increase after a sustained period of drinking? Or a cominbation?

My stats:
AST.....54 IU/L
Iron......210 ug/DL

Previous year's stats:
AST.....25 IU/L
Iron......101 ug/DL

I'm just worried and would like to get more blood work and/or liver diagnosis if it is warranted.
