why are my hormones off?

I am 23 years old. I had blood work done to check ovary function because i was spotting in between periods (copper iud in place) and had a slight pain over my right ovary. Blood work came back as abnormal that my LH and FSH levels were to far apart from each other and they assumed I had PCOS! Or considered me borderline to it since i have no symptoms of this disorder! so because they are calling me borderline to this she sent me to get more blood work to check my glucose and iron levels. Came back normal! then I had an ultrasound done and the nurse said that my ovaries look healthy and have normal follicules in there. The right side follicules were small than the left but she figured I would be ovulating on the left side. and she counted 5 follicules on left side where they were bigger and she said to have pcos you have to have a bunch of follicules! so i am confused! whys my hormone levels so off? Do I ask to be retested?
