PTB/Pneumonia Left Middle Lung

My chest x ray results found out that there are haziness on my left middle lung which resulted to Pulmonary Tuberculosis (PTB) vs Pneumonia. What does it mean? I really need the advice to start my work soon. I don't feel sick, I don't have cough and cold but sometimes I feel like there's sometjing in my throat and that I have to clear it before speaking. When I spit the phlegm it has clear color. Please it makes me nervous. Can I cure it? Can it be prevented so that it won't get worse? Thank you
