    You should either go with www or non-www, never both! If you use both your site is considered as duplicate.
    Since your website is indexed without www, you should stick with that and redirect the www version to the non-www.

    Your impressions are good, but clicks are a little low, especially when you have such a high rank in the results.

    A little low?? It's nothing lol

    Dude, with those kinds of impressions and an average position of about 3rd I am super surprised your clicks are nothing! One click for over 5000 impressions?

    What do your search results look like when you search for your keywords? I don't think you're being clear in your title and description tags for them to show accurately what your site is about, so people don't click your links in the SERP. And on that note if that were the case then how the heck would the SE index you?

    Does GWT say anything about your site appearance or HTML errors?

    Hello,

    What he meant was, with the given attachment of yours. There can be 2 things
    1) The data you showing is cooked up
    2) Or the meta tags (Title,Keywords, etc) used by you in your website is not matching for which you want your site to be ranked.
    (For 5000 impressions 1 click, is too bad)
