    You maybe starting a slight infection like maybe sinus , ear or throat or just a cold and your body is just fighting it on its own before it gets bad AND that's a good thing :-) SEE your body will fight infections and things for you if your immunity is working good so I think yours is fine :-) Now if it was 25000 then I would be concerned of pneumonia or worse . Plus if all the other blood was fine except for the 12000 in white blood cells then you have nothing to worry about and your body is fighting any infection even low infections and Normal 👍 Sounds like you got good immune system!
