Question about my MRI

Below are the results from my MRI. I have an appt with my doctor in 2 weeks but was wondering if this is something to be concerned about.

My back does make a 'popping' sound after I stand still for a few minutes and then take a deep breath or turn, but I don't feel any pain.

Thanks in advance for your help.
