Your Null is Constant Variance and the calculated chi2 test statistics
with 1 degree of freedom is not significant at even 10 percent level
of significance. This means that there is no problem of
heteroskedasticity in your estimation.
You can go ahead with OLS and I think white standard errors would also do good.
