Low hemoglobin, low iron, normal ferritin and hematocrit

What does it mean if I have a low hemoglobin (11.4 - not very low), low iron (the nurse said), normal ferritin (also according to the nurse) and a normal hematocrit?
WBC was 10.1. They're testing my iron (and the nurse said only my iron) tomorrow.
I had strep throat six weeks ago, followed by a sinus infection and seven days of Levaquin and then another, worse , sinus infection and am in the middle of fourteen days of Levaquin.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
