Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

You mentioned that your WBC count is 12.2, which is slightly higher. This denote an infection generally. Though this needs clinical correlation too. So if you have symptoms like fever, pain, loss of appetite, body-aches, diarrhea, sense of non well being; the high WBC count would point to an infection.
