In brief: Don't worry

A WBC count of 3.
4 would be considered low, but it's not worrisome. This happens commonly. Repeating the test in a few weeks to months can show that it returns to the normal range. If it was zero, that would be worrisome. I would especially not worry if you are feeling well and this was checked as a screen or a problem such as high blood pressure.
