Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
What are your symptoms?
Usually for typhoid on examination the biggest sign is something called relative bradycardia.

After that a widal is performed.
Widal should be performed only after 5 days of fever so that its conclusive.
Based on your present values, you dont have typhoid. But that might not be necessary. 
Kindly consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
