Have you had only the antibody test ir have you had the test for the hep c virus itself?
Normally people have the antibody test first then if positive you need to have asecond test to confirm you are currently infected with hep c. The reason is about 25% of people are able to beat hep c without treatment. But those people will always test positive for hepatitis c antibodies.
If you had the hep c virus test (called HCV RNA by PCR) you should have been told your viral load. Also you should have another test to find out your genotype of hep c that would be like 1a,1b, 2a, 2b etc.
Do you have medical insurance? Even if you don't there are different ways to get treatment
Good luck to you
