It almost certainly means that you have some type of clinically significant lung disease.  "Cloudy" just means that the disease process is widespread.  The x-ray findings must be combined with your medical history and a good physical exam, especially of your lungs, to narrow down the possible diagnoses.

You should ask your doctor to explain what he/she thinks is going on, what is the likely diagnosis and what other testing will be required.  If your primary care doctor is unwilling/unable to do this, you should request consultation with a lung specialist.

You should not delay seeking further care.
