In brief: Not necessarily

without knowing the full details of the report, this most likely means that you had TB in that part of your lung in the past and that you were either treated for it or your own immune system controlled it successfully.
The damage done by the TB left a scar. i would need more information on what treatment you have had in the past and what your current symptoms are to fully answer your question
