Atypical lymphocytes

I am a 35 male in good health. I just received my recent blood work back and there was a comment on the results that noted 'few atypical lymphocytes'. All my results in my CBC panel are within the normal range, except my platelets. My platelets have been on the lower end my whole life and my mother has the same issue. Over the past three years, the platelet range for me is from 116-135. I spoke with my doctor today and he is not concerned at all the comment of a 'few atypical lymphocytes', especially since my absolute lymphocytes are smack dab in the middle of the normal range. Should I be at ease after the conversation with my doctor or is this cause for concern?
