In brief: Arterial blockage.

Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion.
It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary.

In brief: Abnormal test

Mildly positive means that the yeah shows a small degree of ischemia or lack of blood supply.
Depending on the sensitivity and specificity of the particular test, the mild positive result could represent a false reading so clinical correlation suggested.
