Your File is completely normal. Nothing to be worried.

Your .htaccess file is completely fine if your are running your site on Apache-based Webserver. If you are running site on Nginx then its a bit different because you will not be able to pick the rules from .htaccess then.

@m24deb Thanks for adding up your valuable suggestion about Nginx.
If you are having an NGINX server the file will be .conf file and it will be like this for WordPress:
location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
}
