No: Unless you are bleeding no need for admission. However you need to talk to your doctor why it is low and follow it closely.

To see doctor: You need to see your doctor to have further tests and evaluation. First of alll, the test should be repeated to confirm the level. . If confirmed, you need to know why your platelet level s low. There are different things that can explain such as platelet clumpings, autoimmune problems, ibone marrow insuficiency/ problems, malignancy , infection, itp, etc. See your doctor as soon as possible.
