I may have a wash sale on one equity

How? With relatively few exceptions, 1099-B's don't report gain/loss.

But there are the buy/sell dates and the net proceeds. And my stock selection paradigm had me buy a stock I'd just sold 26 days earlier. However, "on further review" (after I'd made the above remark), it turns out both trades were profitable, so the question is moot.
