pulmonary pressure on echo report

Which of these is my pulmonary pressure? I had an echo for shortness of breath and palps.
Does all this stuff look okay?
the report also says "the pulmonic valve is not well visualized but is grossly normal
The main pulmonary artery is not well visualized but appears normal in size.

Does all this look okay?  Thanks for your time

None of these refer to the pulmonary artery pressure and all of this looks normal.
