Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
it depends on your age, sex, and some other factors.
WBC minimally outside range. may not be significant.
looks anaemia, again depends on many factors.
what did you do CBC for?
it is anyway not serious and can get anaemia worked up.

take care and pl. keep me posted on the progress.
