In brief: It does NOT

Appear to be indicating there is too much to worry about.
The first sentence in your question is a normal finding. Mild scoliosis, is nothing to worry about, given there is less chance of it progressing since you are done growing. T7 wedging may represent a normal finding -- possibly a congenital osteodystrophy, which lead to the vertebra not appearing like a cube. See a spine specialist.

In brief: Curved spine

It is normal to have 12 ribs.
There is a slight curve at the top of your thoracic spine. At t7, the vertebra looks more trapezoidal than rectangular. May indicate a compression fracture, or is normal for you. These findings need to be put in context of any symptoms you might have. If you have no symptoms, there is nothing that needs to be done. Check with a spine specialist.
