I'm 33 years old female I have very high RBC in urine (50-150mm3). I had ct scan and all seems normal. Could it be from vaginal discharge as I breastfed?
Sometimes: Breastfeeding would be unrelated, but yes, in women who are on their period or spotting a urinalysis can show blood that is not really coming from the bladder. A doctor may perform a catheter urine collection to eliminate the chance of contamination from vaginal blood/discharge. If the blood really is from the bladder and with no recent UTI, further testing may be needed, i.e. cystoscopy
I have a high RBC in my urine no infection, lower back pain, I've had a ultrasound scan which looked normal what's wrong?
RBCs: This means there is a source of blood entering the urinary tract. This must be taken into account with other information, to include other abnormal findings on the urine, other labs, and clinical context (symptoms, situation, etc.).

Elevated counts: High lymphocytes are very non specific from viral infection (benign) to very severe such as lymphoma (disease of the lymphocytes) as well as many others. HIgh basophil is uncommon but that too can be non specific and not serious but on rare occasion can indicate a bone marrow issue. Seeking your PCP's opinion as to whether a referral to a hemoatologist (blood MD) is a good idea to follow.
For years ive been iron deficient but had normal to high RBC. How is this possible? Potential Cause? Unexplained and untreated due to normal/high RBC.
Probably not: May be worth repeating it in a month or two to see if it persists.
Need actual result: 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. You have not provided the actual results and it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without data.
