Is my WBC count normal?

I just had a routine complete blood picture done. Everything is within the normal ranges however I was just comparing my previous test results and WBC count was first 8000, then increased to 11,000 and now with the latest test it is at 4940. The normal range is between 4000-10,000. The neutrophils, lymphocytes etc are all within normal ranges. So is my wbc a cause for concern? It is within the range but I've googled and now worried myself sick as it's apparently on the low end of normal. I don't have any illness or infection that I know of.

I think the best thing to do is not worry about it and relax knowing your blood results are good! Trends are just that, they come and go, but what is the concern is if they stay out of normal range for an extended length of time! :)

I have just calculated the absolute values for my WBCs. It appears that the eosinophils and monocytes are higher than the absolute range reference I found on the internet. For eg. I believe my monocytes are 3952 & eosinophils are 988! The rest are within ranges although on the lower sides of normal. But what could a high monocytes and eosinophils mean?! Please help I'm really worried!
