Hi
You can find more info about all possible statusses and how to handle / fix them at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7440203?hl=en

Alternate page with proper canonical tag: This page is a duplicate of a page that Google recognizes as canonical. This page correctly points to the canonical page, so there is nothing for you to do.

Excluded by ‘noindex’ tag: When Google tried to index the page it encountered a 'noindex' directive and therefore did not index it. If you do not want this page indexed, congratulations! If you do want this page to be indexed, you should remove that 'noindex' directive. To confirm the presence of this tag or directive, request the page in a browser and search the response body and response headers for "noindex". 

Blocked by robots.txt: This page was blocked to Googlebot with a robots.txt file. You can verify this using the robots.txt tester. Note that this does not mean that the page won't be indexed through some other means. If Google can find other information about this page without loading it, the page could still be indexed (though this is less common). To ensure that a page is not indexed by Google, remove the robots.txt block and use a 'noindex' directive.
