Thanks for your post.
Looking at your labs (if confirmed), I'd recommend starting HIV treatment in the not so distant future.
There's a lot to consider about which medicines to start-- take some time to look over the "first line treatment" category on the forum- I think that you'll find many posts on the topic.
