for all I know, this is the total number of inodes on that file system, and the number of used inodes. An inode is an organization unit that usually holds the metadata of a file (e.g. ownership, access rights, MIME type, timestamps).
So at a very cursory approach you might say the numbers displayed by fsck are the maximum number of files and directories this file system can accommodate, and the actual number of files and directories.
