I am having a high fever, swollen tonsils with white


Q: I am having a high fever, swollen tonsils with white piss, and fatigue for the past 4 days. 2 days ago I had a chill around mid day, my body was shaking. Today I woke up very sweaty. I don't have a cough, no runny nor blocked nose.

I received my blood test today with the following results:
WBC: 12.3
Neutophils: 77% high
Lymphocytes: 13.1% low
Monocytes: 7.5% high

After researching a lot on the internet, I got worried because nearly all the resources say that low lymphocytes could be a serious illness.

Could you please explain WBC results above

Symptoms:  Fever, chills, swollen tonsills with white puss
