My MRI say that I have a slight superior displacement of the meniscal root. Does that mean a tear?

In brief: Most likely yes.

The meniscus is "rooted" to the top of the shin bone or tibia at the front and back or anterior and posterior, respectively.
Usually root tears occur at the posterior attachment.
