We certainly can't say whether you have lupus or not. It is unlikely you can rule lupus in or out by yourself. Or any connective tissue disease of the lupus sort.
It is now up to you to decide whether you are going to consult a doctor or not and we can't do that for you. We have already given you our best advice and made practical suggestions as well as answering all your questions very patiently.
You have already got a diagnosis of fibro but you take no meds for it because it "doesn't bother " you, despite the fact that you are in pain at times. That's your choice of course but it's not clear to me why you are "bothered" whether you have an autoimmune disease connective tissue disease or not. Most people want answers because they are very "bothered".

You also said your skin doesn't bother you.

My last bit of advice to you at this point is to keep out of the sun and protect yourself if you have to be exposed. Get your urine tested and repeat the CBC every six months or however often your doctor recommends The low white blood cell count needs keeping a close eye on. Make sure you have the further blood tests for lupus in view of that rather high ANA.

This is getting old and we really need to move on here

Good Luck

Just to add that you are not correct in assuming that if the rash is not lupus related you must have UCTD. UCTD isn't that much different from lupus- it's just a variation and if there's a rash associated with it it is of the same type as lupus.
