In brief: Not necessarily

Eosinophils are important in fighting off parasites, but they are also important in allergic reactions, and could have been used up in this manner. Rather than worry, consult a hematologist who can do more specific testing.
Hope this helps!

In brief: No.

Normal is 200-450.
Unless you have signs or symptoms of a major systemic disorder I do not think I would be worried. Eos can be low with chronic alcohol use or with excess cortisol states but those are somewhat uncommon.
