Hello and welcome to HCM

the interpretation of semen analysis are as follows:

Volume of semen: 4 ml- This is a normal volume
Sperm counts: 54 million sperms/ ml- This is a normal finding
Morphology: More than 50 % sperms have normal morphology
Motility: Only 48 % sperms show active progressive forward movement. Atleast 50 % sperms should show active forward movement
There is presence of pus cells and epithelial cells.
Presence of 1+ pus cells indicates mild infection. There is only marginal decrease in motility.
I advice you to get the mild infection treated and then repeat the semen analysis.

Thanks and take care
