The good news is that you have more data. It affects your average result which is what matters most.
I don’t think the difference between individual results is significant. If you had done more testss, you’d know how stable your results normally are. All I can tell you is that mine randomly vary by a good bit more than 0.02.
The difference might not be totally random though. Depending on the exact circumstances of these two tests, the extra heat might explain the slightly higher result.
In any event, there is definitely no cause for worrying as long as future tests do not come back with even higher numbers.
