The suspicious density in your right upper lobe can be a consolidation due to infection like pneumonia; it can be Tuberculosis in the right upper lobe. It can be fibrosis due to smoking.

It is definitely not because of dirt going on to the film.

The doctor who X-rayed you can explain you better about the finding.

Hope this helps.
