In brief: Probably normal

Not exacly normal, but these Pap findings are very common and rarely serious.
Atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (called ASCUS, sounds like "ask us") is so common it can be considered normal. Most paps show a few white blood cells ("polymorphonuclear cells"), and gram positive bacteria usually indicate a healthy vagina. To be sure, check w/ doc or clinic where pap was done.

In brief: Probable infection

You may have a cervical or vaginal infection.
You should see a gynecologist to determine if there is an infection and, if so, to treat it.
