In brief: CBC and further
A complete blood cell count (CBC) includes the number of platelets in blood.
Normal range is from about 150k to 250 k. There is usually no risk of bleeding if the count is above 40k. If thrombocytopenia is detected, it would require further investigation to ascertain the cause.
