Not really.: The normal ranges for platelet volume and count are 7.5-11.5 fl (femtolitre), and 130-400 k/ul respectively. Your volume of 13.7 is higher than this range, but not much. These are typical ranges, so they can vary. Unless you have unusual symptoms, or bruising, or clotting issues, like blood taking a long time to clot, there should be no problem, and these are normal values for you.
