If WBC is high does that mean neutrophils monocytes and lymphocytes will be high too?

In brief: Not at all

Usually a high white count is due either to high neutrophils alone, or less often high lymphs alone.
Do yourself a favor -- don't even look at your CBC unless you have a specialty interest. It's only one piece in the complex puzzle of diagnosis; little abnormalities seldom mean anything at all, and your physician has already taken the big abnormalities into account.
