Hallo Pat
Increased bilirubin can be due to higher than normal breakdown of blood cells, liver disease, or an enzyme problem (Gilbert's disease - which is not dangerous) or blockage of the gall ducts or even some medications. Your doctor will probably look at blood tests taking physical examination into consideration and decide whether further tests are necessary - like sonar or further blood tests.
