Your TSH is a little on the high side, which can indicate hypothyroidism.  You should request that your doctor order a complete thyroid profile including FREE T3 and FREE T4.  T3 and T4 are the actual thyroid hormones and will give you lots more information on your thyroid status.  Bear in mind that symptom relief for many of us didn't come until FT4 was about middle of range and FT3 upper half to upper third of range.

In addition, since your ANA was positive, you should be tested for thyroid antibodies to see if you have autoimmune thyroid disease (most thyroid dysfunction in the developed world is autoimmune).  Thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOab) and thyroglobulin antibodies (TGab) should both be tested since some of us are positive for one, some the other and some both.

High cholesterol can be a hypo symptom.

Vitamin D deficiency often seems to go hand-in-hand with hypo.  Has your doctor supplemented D?

Stress is a major factor in onset or exacerbation of autoimmune disease.

Do you have hypo symptoms?

A nucleolar pattern is typically indicative of scleroderma and the limited cutaneous form of systemic scleroderma better known as CREST syndrome (Calcinosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, Esophageal dysmotility, Sclerodactyly, Telangiectasia).

About half of scleroderma patients develop hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is the second most common cause of elevated cholesterol levels after diet. Vitamin D deficiency is also very common with hypothyroidism. Your other labs may be due to scleroderma but a full work up is needed to rule out the cause.
