Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Brief answer: Interpreted as a normal study (in terms of fertility).

Detailed answer: In my opinion, overall semen analysis is fine except the pus cells, above 10 which may indicate an underlying asymptomatic infection of the prostate, seminal vesicle, or the urinary tract. However, it doesn't play a significant role in affecting the fertility. So you need not be much concerned. You can have a course of antibiotics after getting doctor's prescription or even without which it returns to normal (i.e., pus cells up to 3) in future semen analysis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
