What does this mean?

Heading elements (<h1>, <h2>, ...) must contain some machine-readable text content.

Heading should never be empty, or just contain whitespace:

<h1>   </h1>

Headings which contain images or other media must specify alternative text:

    <img src="heading.png" alt="Press releases">
