Low WBC: There may be some immune issues with low WBC and lymphocyte count, but your hematologist should do additional work up. There are subtypes of lymphocytes like cd4, cd8, etc. That change in certain diseases. This may help sort it out.

Unlikely: I low lymphocyte count is common in normal people. If there are no clinical issues that suggest the presence of an autoimmune disease, the low count should not be a concern.
