What do these ongoing CBC readings mean?

I have had low wbc and low neutrophils ongoing for the past few months.  Originally, no symptoms, and first reading was found at normal physical.  Now, fatigue and posterior neck rash.  I was referred to a Hematologist who took the most recent CBC, and wants to wait another 4 weeks.  I am worried something serious is going on, and was hoping someone could shed more light on these results, and whether I should be concerned.

Low neutrophils and/or WBC can be due to vitamin B12 deficiency or persistent subclinical viral infection. It can also be due to Lyme or lupus, especially since you have a rash. Thyroid disorder is another possibility. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
