can you help me understand my results? is it lupus?

Hi, so I've been having a lot of symptoms, seen several specialists and finally ended up on a rheumathologist. Among other tests, I had an immunology blood test, and I would like you to help me understand my results until I go to my next appointment with the doc:

ANA - negative
Anti-DNA - negative (8.2 Ul/ml)
Anti-Scl-70 - negative
C-ANCA - negative
P-ANCA - negative
C3 - 83.3 mg/dL
C4 - 17.5 mg/dL

At this point what obviously makes me more concerned is the amount of C3 and C4. I am a 21 year old male, Are these results normal? Do you think there is a possibility of having lupus? Thanks in advance
