Inflammation: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, what you described is consistent with inflammation, not necessarily an infection, it may be auto-immune inflammation. Wish you good health!

Impossible to say: You give no explanation why these tests were even ordered. Without symptoms, it is impossible to give an anwser. Elevated WBC and CRP are suggestive of inflammation or infection.

Can't tell: without a clinical context, isolated results cannot be interpreted without a full clinical picture, kindly refer to the ordering physician with your questions, best wishes
