Hello and welcome to HCM,

If you want to know whether you are pregnant or not, you need to take up urine pregnancy test.
The ultrasound abdomen has picked up an ovarian cyst containing daughter cysts.
Ovaries are commonly affected by cysts. These cysts may be benign, borderline, or malignant.
The benign cysts are harmless for all practical purposes.
Borderline and malignant cysts need to be removed as they can spread to distant sites.
If the benign cysts cause disturbing symptoms like abdominal distention, pain, menstrual irregularities, etc they need to be removed.
Your ovarian cysts is 3 cm in maximum diameter, the size is not too big so it can be left as it is.
Consult your gynecologist and stay on regular follow up.

Thanks and take care
