Your blood picture is indicative of iron deficiency anemia. Low iron could be due to poor intake, loss from body as happens in acidity and GERD, rectal polyps etc (so test for occult blood or hidden blood in stool is a must), due to improper absorption or due to storage disorders. A low iron and normal ferritin indicates a chronic illness.
You need to run these tests to find out the cause of your iron deficiency. Treatment is through iron supplementation. Hope this helps. Take care!
