In brief: See your doctor

Hyperintense white matter signals may mean nothing clinically or could be related to a host of diagnoses, including multiple sclerosis, autoimmune, etc.
It has to be correlated to an exam and other testing to make any sense of it, a lot of times it is an incidental finding and means very little clinically. Your doctor will help you understand what this report means to you clinically.

In brief: See below

This finding requires more discussion with the physician who ordered the mri.
Sometimes it is a non-specific (not worrisome) variation of normal. Other times, it could represent a more serious condition. Your physical exam and other tests will be helpful to determine better.
