In brief: Mild sinusitis

This is a common finding on MRI.
It usually is of no importance unless you have sinus headaches, or an active sinus infection. You can try using non-sedative antihistamines or steroid nasal sprays if allergies are a problem. For a more natural alternative you may use a Neti pot to break up the mucus. If you have no symptoms, then don't worry about it much.
