Great labs.  My glucose is often around 100, if I ate before giving blood.  I don't believe that's anything to worry about.  I suppose if one fasted, it would be expected to be lower.

Thank you Tendlou2. The problem is I always fast  for at least 8 hours before my blood tests.  I am only allowed to drink water.

The NIH says a reading of 100 is actually normal when fasting.  I just learned something myself.  I thought it should be lower.

 http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003482.htm

Modified- Well, I did some half-ass reading.  First, you're reading was 102 and not 100.  It goes on to suggest 100-125 while fasting would be considered impaired.  We have many medically educated folks here.  I am sure they can weigh in.
