Hi. I went for a regular check up. My eGFR reading is 118 ml/min Well, I’m 39 years old. Is my reading normal.

A normal estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR )is greater than 90 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared.  Hence, the eGFR that you mention would appear to be normal.  I also recommend that you have urine testing for blood, protein and infection in order to make sure no kidney disease is present.
