bizarre bloodwork

I got some bloodwork im concerned about what it means. I'm a 22 year old female. Most concerning, my B12 levels were very high (1373 pmol/L) (I don't take supplements). My RBC and hematocrit were also high. Cholesterol was also high (very unusual, I'm almost nearly deficient and I eat healthy). Ferritin was a little low (not abnormal, but supplements recommended). There were leukocytes in my urine (2+? i don't know what that means).

I've been seeing doctors due to some Raynaud-like symptoms. I saw a hematologist but she thought I should see a rheumatologist. I do have von Willebrand's. my GP ordered this blood test.

That's quite a lot of stuff to sort out. High B12 can be a marker for liver disease or diabetes. High hematocrit can be associated with the blood getting thicker, which reduces the natural dilution of cholesterol and produces higher cholesterol levels.  Leukocytes in the urine can indicate a UTI.

You're going to have to have your doctor(s) go over all of this, it's too many things to narrow down. Certainly don't neglect to test for diabetes.
