A platelet count of 504,000 is high but is usually not a serious problem. Often it is a sign of a healthy bone marrow reacting to low iron. This is very likely in a healthy 31 y/o female. Depending on blood loss during menstruation and dietary Iron intake, you are very likely to run low Iron and may even be anemic. The marrow responds by trying to increase blood cell production.

What was the Creatinine itself? Usually when the BUN is a little elevated or the BUN/Creatinine ratio is elevated in an otherwise healthy person, it is most likely related to dehydration: you should make sure you are drinking enough liquids during the day. Red blood cell count is only part of the picture but be part of Iron deficiency anemia- common in menstruating females.
