I'd give the carboy a swirl and see if it drops at all. If it's solid for a few days, barrel it.

Any chance you are taking hydro readings at a temp other than 60 deg? That could cause a .005 variation. 2-4 differences in OG/FG are common.

Do you really have a barrel? Or is that a Welsh thing for keg?
