In brief: No

The MRI you describe indicates "aging" of your spine, most of us get this at some point.
Where is the pain? In the muscles? Use heat, isometric exercises (swimming, bicycle/stationary bike, rowing machine, yoga). Control weight to body mass index (bmi) less than 30. If the pain is down the leg it indicates irritation of a nerve root, see your neurosurgeon for a workup if in doubt.

In brief: Back pain

Should not be a problem. Mri is not unusual for a 29y/o with or without back pain.
If you are experiencing back pain a good posture and flexibility program coupled with a core strengthening program should be very helpful in eliminating your pain and preventing future back problems. Have to put in the work, but, will be glad you did! good luck.
