Blood count a bit hi: You have mildly elevated White blood cell (WBC) count. This is commonly due to infection. There are some other rare causes but before you worry about anything else, get your blood checked again(2 weeks after the last WBC was done). If your WBC count is still high/higher than before then you need to see your doctor for further testing to find the cause.
