Have VPN, not techie. "IPv6 test not reachable." Still safe?

Background: I have two VPNs, one paid for, one free, would like to be as secure as possible. My level of tech understand is just things I've read online (no IT degree) and am open to simple instruction but do not wish to spend days or hours diving in. My understanding is that if someone wants my info bad enough they'll eventually get it so I'd like to be as secure as possible but only have about 30 minutes today and maybe 15 minutes every other day to put aside for this one aspect of my hectic life.

Main question: When I go to 'ipleak.net' the resulting page says 'IPv6 test not reachable. (error).' Is this a problem as far as people being able to detect my IP?

Additional: better websites to determine flaws in my VPN setup, does 'No forwarded IP detected. If you are using a proxy, it's a transparent proxy' present a problem (the IP location there is for second / free VPN), anything I may have missed or how to improve web security without needing a degree in IT to understand and having maybe 15 minutes every other day to dedicate to this.

Thank you very much.

Your private information (IPv6 address and location) may be leaking out online while you assume your VPN is keeping you safe.
It means that you'll better choose another VPN where everything will work fine in order to be sure in your safety.
