Low platelets and low lymphocytes mean what?

I have chronic Hep C. My platelets have been dropping continuously for the past year. It was first noticed when they were at 114 and they are now at 66. I also have a low lymphocytes count of 1.0. Is this related to my hep c? The doctor asked if anyone in my family had leukemia. He felt that there might be something going on with my bone marrow. My father's sister died of Leukemia. I'm very confused because i've done some research, but still am not sure if this is due to my hep c or leukemia. I've had Hep c for close to 20 years now. I'm currently waiting to see a Hematologist. If you can shed any light it would be appreciated.
