Low Platelets, Anisocytosis, Elevated RDW

Hi, I am in otherwise excellent health. Went for a check up and they ran a CBC and then a smear due to the first results. I have LOW platelets, 76000.
My RDW is just above the lab range 15.4 with 15 being the high end for normal for this lab. Also it said anisocytosis present. What could this mean everything else is in normal range and nothing else unusual. I have not symptoms of any kind but am freaking out about the low platelets. About a year and a half ago my platelet count was on the low end of normal. Also what exactly does anisocytosis mean. I read different things online, but nothing else in my results suggest any anemia. HELP!
