Echo results and abnormal RV GLS

I had an echo due to chest pain. Most values were normal however the RV GLS was -10. The E/A was high as was the LV systolic volume. I’m stressed about the GLS. Should I be?  Could this be nothing? I don’t see my cardiologist to go over the results for 2 weeks. Everything I’m reading on the internet says  it can play a role in the prognosis of heart failure and other diseases but I don’t have anything like that. Pretty healthy. A little overweight and my blood pressure is usually around 130/85
