In brief: Small white spot

A single small white spot should not be cause for concern.
It can be caused by high blood pressure. Since you have high blood pressure, it makes sense to use a little aspirin. We see white spots in 50% of our brain MRI's up here. If you also have headaches, it is reasonable to have the MRA test. Otherwise I am not sure why this test was ordered.

In brief: Do not worry

Does not sound like ms, and the solitary lesion may be due to prior trauma, a small stroke or even a nonspecific chronic area.
Depending upon your mra outcome, might get better outcome with Aggrenox twice daily as contrasted with baby asa. Since this is an activity in progress, ask your doctor advice regarding the "ounce of prevention".
