Hi!
Low WBC count could be due to some medication you are taking which is suppressing your bone marrow. Certain medications also selectively cause low WBC. Hence talk to your treating doctor regarding this. If there is increased infection and the body cannot fight it, the WBC start going down as the pathogen start engulfing them. However, if there is no fever, it is to be that type of infection.  Other common causes of low WBC are flu, lupus, Hodgkin's lymphoma, some types of cancer, typhoid, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, enlarged spleen or hyper-spleenism, and folate deficiency.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please also consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
