Increased interstitial markings

I am 22 and had a positive TB skin test today. I have an X-Ray that states:

The lungs are hyperaerated. There are increased interstitial lung markings without evidence of infiltrates, nodules, or masses. The costophreic angles are sharp. The cardiac silhouette size is within normal limits. The trachea projects normal midline. Survey of soft tissue and osseous structures demonstrate no acute pathology.

Impression:

1) No active parenchymal disease
2) Hyperaerated lungs with increases interstitial markings.

What does this mean?
