What does a internal carotid arteries suggest?

A recent MRI says that the internal carotid arteries are torutous and loop at the skull base. The vessels are tortuous and relatively ectatic. Should I be concerned? Additionally, there is the statement: There is a fetal origin in the right posterior cerebral artery. What does this mean?
