Is 3.4 white blood cell count too low? What could be the problem? Lymphocytes, monocytes, and the rest were at noraml range..

In brief: Generally no

A white blood cell count has a wide range but your number is just fine.

In brief: Yes

You need to see an immunologist asap.
You need a specialist to evaluate your immune system because something could be wrong. But, i say "could" because 3.4 might be normal for your body. But better to be safe than sorry. See an immunologist.

In brief: Follow it up

If the absolute neutrophil count, absolute lymphocyte count, and absolute monocyte count are all within normal range or near it, and you have no symptoms of systemic illness, i'd be grateful for good health and see what it's like next year. "reference ranges" on blood tests are specifically set so that some healthy people fall outside them.

In brief: Not necessarily

Normal white cell count ranges from about 4-11 k.
However, in an otherwise health person a count of 3.4 may not be abnormal.
