You are okay: The lab looks fine to me. Don't worry about slight elevation of mpv.

Results in range: Didn't get lab's reference range with your results ? Labs do vary. With that being said, your % monocytes are a bit high (range 2-8%) you are 9.4 the concern is out of range mean platelet volume mpv. (range 7.5-11.5 ) you test at 12.2. Platelets are cells involved in blood clotting. Higher ranges indicate platelets are larger, and possibly mean greater risk of stroke or heart attack. Retest w md.
