Well, from the description it sounds that you have slightly low levels of WBC.

If WBC levels are low, then it should not be ignored and have to be evaluated by doctor.

Common possible causes are-

-Aplastic anemia
-Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
-Infectious diseases
-Vitamin deficiency.
-Premature destruction of blood cells by the spleen.

Low lymphocytes can be due to- Fasting, intense physical stress, viral infections such as the flu and hepatitis.

Detailed blood work have to be done for evaluation of right cause.
Many times, patient may not have any symptoms for these disease.
I understand that you do not have any possible symptoms, but it should not be left ignored, and cause have to be evaluated.

Please make an appointment with doctor for management of this issue.

Hope this helped
