Your white count is high and that is a very telling sign of infection which could be a complication of your endometriosis.

Bleeding risk: Platelets are important to initiate blood clotting. With a count of 50,000 your time to stop bleeding will be twice that of normal. By itself that's not very dangerous, but should be monitored. The cause of low platelets are infections, drugs, auto-immune reactions, and blood or bone marrow diseases. It needs further evaluation if follow up counts show it getting worse. ...Read more

Numbers are numbers: Numbers are just numbers, so the significance of them must be looked at in the context of a patient's real-life situation. From a purely numbers point of view, "above high normal" usually means that only ~3% of the NORMAL people in the community get that test result, and the other 97% of the NORMAL people in the community would get a lower result. Some people with a "mildly high" are not normal. ...Read more
