6.6 is not very high but definitely high enough that gout can not be ruled out. Normal or abnormal doesn’t matter. A single borderline test isn’t definite anyway: if you were tested again, results might be a bit higher or a bit lower.
Gout can not be diagnosed based on a forum post, sorry.

In case your pain and swelling go away, consider getting tested again. In addition to uric acid monitoring, there are other blood tests such as ferritin which might give extra clues.
