Abnormal cbc, does this indicate simple anemia ?

Patient : I recently had an issue where my I felt like I had a constant lump in my throat. I went to a free clinic and the doctor sent me to get a cbc, and two thyroid tests. Thyroid came back normal however my blood is all over the place. Does this look like simple anemia to you? and what type? I had anemia as a child but haven't had many issues since. I am a 27 yr old female. wbc 8.1 (normal) rbc 5.5 (high) hemogoblin 11.5 (low) hematocrit 38.3 (normal) mcv 70 (low) mch 20.9 (low) mchc 30.0 (normal) rdw 21.4 (high) platelet 257 (normal) mpv not reportable Thyroid was: t4 free 1.0 (normal) tsh, 3rd generation 1.670 (lower side of normal) The clinic I went to won't return my phone calls so unfortunately internet is the best I have at the moment. I've googled stuff and it doesn't seem like it makes sense. Opinions please.
