Insignificant.: The difference between "trace" & "mild" tricuspid regurgitation is insignificant, as there is no specific treatment for the condition & no apparent consequence for having it. (In fact, there is no replacement valve surgery for the tricuspid.) Mild-to-mod pulmonary hypertension relates to high blood pressures in the lungs. The measurements aren't 100% accurate, so the degree is estimated.

Very serious: This diagnosis especially at your age is of such grave importance that I warn you against taking advice from anyone else until you have reviewed it fully with both your primary care physician and the specialist who made / confirmed the diagnosis.
