Best thing to do would be go to your GP and see what the issues is. If it is anaemia (diagnosed by blood test), they will also know how severe it is.
Treatments for anaemia depend on the severity. For minor anaemia or being close to anaemic you will probably just need to include more iron in your diet (meats, beans, pulses etc). For more sever anaemia you may need to take supplements to make up for the low levels.

Have you noticed any other symptoms like being tired often, being sensitive to the cold etc? If so, that would be another thing to mention when you see your GP.

Hope that helps.
