It is not as scary as it sounds. You cannot be a thal(major) which is the severe form of thalassemia - so relax. Most of the posts on this site might be related to thal(major). The other form of thalassemia - Minor (which sometimes shows no symptoms) or Intermedia (which can be mild or severe). Usually, if the blood reports show the Red Blood Cell size smaller (MCV value) and the person is not Iron deficient, further testing (Hemoglobin Electrophoresis is a good test) should be done to find out if a person has Thalassemia (Trait)
