Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
Well, low hematocrit indicates anaemia and low neutrophil count may predispose the infant to infections. Yes, you should be concerned about it. You must consult your paediatrician for the proper diagnosis and further guidance as the same cannot be made online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
