I have an iron count of 30, is this really bad?

Depends. Men/women have different "normal" values for iron levels. But other blood markers are needed to completely interpret the iron level. Total iron binding capacity tells us how much iron your blood can transport. Ferritin level tells us how well you carry iron into cells, hemoglobin level tells us how well your iron entered your red blood cells. All blood tests need to be interpreted in context.
