Brief Answer:
It is likely to be bronchitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the report attached with the query.
The mild increase in cardiothoracic ratio is suggestive of cardiomegaly - a mild increase in the size of the heart caused by chronic hypertension.
The increase in the bronchovascular markings are suggestive of a mild short term chest infection- Bronchitis. There are no signs of any serious infection. This can be taken care of with proper systemic antibiotics.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
