In brief: Many causes

Chronic blood loss in menstrual blood, abnormal bleeding in intestine, nutritional, deficiencies, especially iron; lead poisoning, thalassemia, leukemia, hemolytic anemia etc.
If you have low red blood count it should be investigated by a doctor.

In brief: Anemia

It can be an indication of anemia, though the hematocrit and hemoglobin levels are more important tests there are many causes of anemia.
