What does my Mantoux test report indicate?

I have 14mm result of mantoux test and submitted to sputum test. I have a result of AFB stain - no acid fast bacillus found; Gram stain - A fair number of pus cells, epithelial cells & gram positive cocci present. Does this mean that I have TB? Thank you for your help

Mantoux is not conclusive.
Your sputum sample is negative means you are clear. No need to worrying
Wishing you good health
