ALT and AST—are two of the most useful measures of liver cell injury, although the AST is less liver specific than is ALT level.
There are three stages of liver damage: 1) elevated liver enzymes, 2) alcoholic hepatitis or fatty liver, 3) cirrhosis.
So probably your should undergo a ultrasound examination especially to rule out fatty liver.
In my opinion probably your levels should be normal if you stop alcohol consumption and the changes may be reversible in early stages.

Ultrasound is the modality to diagnose fatty liver.
Yes ultrasound is able to show the difference between a fatty liver and cirrhosis.
But based upon the numbers suggest minimal liver damage and this may be reversible.
Alcoholic fatty liver disease may be reversible with abstinence of alcohol.
Fatty liver disease rarely causes any symptoms, but it's an important warning sign that you're drinking at a harmful level.
Fatty liver disease is reversible. If you stop drinking alcohol for two weeks, your liver should return to normal.
