Your X ray must have shown a spot with possibility of Tuberculosis it may be a spot of childhood or sometimes it may reactivate and can cause disease. So sputum samples for Acid Fast Bacilli is tested to rule out active Tuberculosis. Do you have fever,Loss of weight or cough and sweating more so in the evening if no . You say your blood test are normal then threre is more possibility of sputun should come negative and you shold pass the medical test.
Best of luck
