welcome to HealthcareMagic
Presently your platelet count of 215000 is normal so you can do regular exercise in gym but as for weightlifting i would advise you to hold on for some time.If you are under treatment or any ongoing medicines for ITP thenyou will have to wait till the count remains normal and stable.Also for weight lifting you have to better consult your treating Physician as he knows your general condition better so ask him.
