In brief: What????

Would you strike out into the wilderness with no camping or hiking experience, & having never looked at a topographic or hiking map? And then you take a first look at the map and are immediately confused? So what do you do? Post a question on HikeTap? This is analogous, except the knowledge gap in medicine is way, way wider. Just relax and wait for the report.

In brief: CT Scan

With any imaging study, it is best to request a CDROM of the images so that you can take this to your doctor when you have a follow up visit to discuss the results of your test.
The facility that does your CT Scan will forward a radiologist interpretation of the study to your doctor as well. This should clear up any questions and any abnormalities can have the appropriate follow up planned.

In brief: Yes

There are many areas of the brain that normally show up bright white on a CT.
Please give the expert radiologist a chance to read it and give his/her report.
