Often normal people can fall out of the "normal" range. There is also a genetic component to this- people with African heritage often run a lower white count than the population in general. The trick is to see if you can dig up old lab results from years ago. It's reassuring if the white count has always been low.
Otherwise, it could be due to a viral infection in the past few months, so I'd recheck it before getting too worried about it. In rare instances, it can be due to serious illness, but if you've been feeling fine and not getting infections, then it's likely ok; you can just follow up regularly to make sure it's not heading down.
