Exactly what it says: Between the second vertebrae of cervical spine (C2) and third vertebrae (C3) is a disc space filled with cartilaginous tissue called C2-C3 disc. With aging and wear and tear over time the disc space becomes lax and bulges and bone spurs can form on the vertebraes especially where they form joints together like uncovertebral joint. 2 mm is small and nothing you described sounds abnormal or alarming
