In brief: Things to ponder

Platelets are your circulations smallest cells.
They are counted by estimating the number floating by in picture like snapshot. Normal numbers will be within a range. since each snapshot will vary. 152K -220K are both well within the normal range, A drop below 100K or level above 400K may need to be investigated.
