In brief: It means:

nothing in particular, what was seen on the upper endoscopy does not reflect any particular disease, and could represent many things or nothing at all! depending on the scenario, a biopsy is taken

In brief: Endoscopy

All that "nonspecific" means is that there were not findings that demonstrated a specific diagnosis.
This does not mean that there was nothing wrong, it just means that there was nothing found to point in a definite direction. You may need more testing or a trial of medicine. Hope this helps.
