I apologize for the picture

OK.

You have elevated antibodies here that suggest Hashimoto's thyroiditis:

The rest of the labs look fine.

What are the next steps I should take? Should I go to a GP and ask for a prescription or should I get more tests done?

Looking at the picture again, it appears your thyroid hormone T4 is high (hard to see the small picture on my phone).

 

It could be this condition:

Regardless - get your GP to evaluate the labs and make a referral to an endocrinologist.

My other symptoms are tiredness, cold hands and feet, constipation, weight gain
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
The tiredness is the most significant out of the lot.

Well, these could be a result of thyroid issues, so please get your GP to get you evaluated further.
