1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    You'd submit a ticket with them here: https://support.steampowered.com/newticket.php

    Ask them what the ban is for, but it will take some time for them to respond. :(

    Normally it happens for people reporting you for scamming them, or buying lots of hijacked items or similar.

    To me it looks like you are an alternate account of some sort. You are free to play, perhaps an alt of someone who had their main account banned by valve. Valve does not just ban f2p from trading for absolutely no reason, especially ones with no items who have never traded.

    he's a Dota player.... see: http://dota2traders.com/threads/kra-d-rep-thread.80616/

    as for his trade ban, as I see he traded keys, can be that the keys where fraudulent or related hijacked/scammed. He'd have to prove how he acquired them.

    Ah Dota 2. That makes sense, I was a little confused myself as to why a F2P would be banned!

    Good luck with the support ticket... They won't tell you anything. All they do is pick one of the responses from their response list and copy and paste them without looking. :(

    Only Valve can help you out with that, even more since offical trade ban by valve and reputation marks on Steamrep are two completely different things, as Steamrep is not related to the company at any level (at least to my knowledge)
