Hi,
I am glad to know that your ultrasound results were normal...Congratulations!.Rest assured that there is nothing wrong with the findings.
Parenchyma  basically means normal breast tissue structure.
Fibroglandular is what breast tissue is: a combination of glands and fibrous tissues.
Don't worry,all is normal! :)
Take care and best wishes...
