Without any context all anyone can say is that you got a nice alignment rate. Have a look at the alignments in IGV or something like that and see if they seem reasonable.

Edit: There's nothing to really analyse there. You have some summary metrics with nothing to compare them to.

If you don't have paired-end data then there's no conception of "concordant" and "discordant" that could be quantified.

I'm sorry, "you mean it is right local alignment" can have too many meanings. If you mean, "So, does the output I posted from bowtie2 indicate that it likely ran correctly and to completion?", then yes.
