Based on your report, it suggests that there is a territory of your heart that is receiving decreased blood flow during physiological stress - and that this has increased from prior testing.  These results should be discussed with the cardiologist who ordered your test to see if further testing should be done (i.e. coronary angiography, etc).  There are 3 major arteries that supply blood to the heart, and the territory you are describing is often supplied by the left circumflex artery.
