This is a common check for a twisted fork and it appears that yours is. But it's possible for a fork twisted as yours is to still be true, if other factors compensate for the error.
Just as the proof of the pudding is in eating, the proof of the fork is in the riding. If your bike tracks true, and doesn't favor either side when ridden no hands then it's OK.
Otherwise, have a competent mechanic check it out.
