Low platelet count/dots on arms/anxiety

Over the last month my platelet count has been tested twice and they have been 129 and 123 respectively. I've been told that is low.

I also have small red dots on my forearms. I read it could be a vitamin D deficiency so I have started taking vitamins again. I also read it could also be a blood disorder or some other disease. What tests could be run to verify what it is? My doctor seems rather nonchalant about it so I've been looking around for another doctor to get a second opinion.

I've also been having what we both believe are probably anxiety attacks. Chest pressure, rapid heartbeat, etc. We've done 2 EKG's and those came out normal so I'm not too worried about those symptoms.

anyone have any ideas?
