I have a slightly high white blood cell count but my hemoglobin is normal. What could that mean?

In brief: What is the count

And what is the differential count? Slightly elevated may be your normal.
It would be good to talk to the doctor who ordered the test as s/he has your whole health history and lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context.

In brief: Elevated WBCs

A mildly elevated WBC can be seen in a bacterial infection.
Stress can also change this count a bit. If you have other symptoms then a good medical provider can use this common blood test to keep looking for a reason for this result.
