My 3 month old has had cold like symptoms for 2 weeks now. She has no fever, white blood count is normal but platelet count is high. What's this mean?

Not much: Platelets are an inflammatory marker, so they typically go up with most infection or inflammation, such as a cold. If they're very high, your pediatrician may follow them, but we would generally expect them to go up with an illness like you're describing. Hope she feels better!
