Answer
Hello Candace,
Warm welcome to you!
Your FT4 is low, Though TSH is in the range, seems to be near borderline. This indicates there are chances of Pitutary hypothyroidism, Cushing's Syndrome etc. It needs further lab investigations. Please send your age and any other symptoms you have. If possible attach your latest picture to the mail.

Thanking you!
