There are no urgent problems with your bones.  
Schmorl's nodes are not an immediate problem, but be careful because your back can't handle trauma.  Sacralization of L5 is a minor birth defect, but very common and not very problematic.    

Google Schmorl's nodes and then sacralization of L5 for descriptions.
