All babies drink: Question is unclear. All new babies drink breast milk... unless there is a "bigger problem," such as prematurity, infection (sepsis), breathing problems, etc... The "bigger problem" usually becomes the worry, not the milk-drinking. The pediatrician can help explain any medical issues. Regarding lab results... numbers are just numbers, without much meaning unless a doctor can see the whole picture.
