Looks like 20ppm to me but it can appear differently depending on the light.

Between 10 + 20ppm. Time for a WC.

Yes, between 10 and 20, certainly a very safe level. If you can keep it like that all the time then your fish will be happy.

How many fish have you got, and how big is your aquarium? Just as a matter of interest

The flash from your camera makes it hard to tell. I never can tell the difference between 10 and 20 ppm anyway. Anyway, I agree with the others, that is 10 - 20 ppm Nitrates. My tap water is similar. You need a denitrator or some other way to remove nitrates. Some people have use a large HOB with Pothos growing in it.
