Echo,sclerosis,: Not usual at your age but not worrying,avoid smoking,recreational drugs and possibly excess dairy and calcium intake(currently some controversy about this)

Probably not: At this time there is probably nothing to worry about (the cardiologist would have let you know if there was). I would simply adopt a healthy lifestyle of exercise, healthy eating, getting to a normal BMI. As long as the sclerosis doesn't affect the way the heart pumps blood (measured as ejection fraction) then it will not cause problems. RBBB is also pretty common and not dangerous.
