I have packet with protocol HTTP and named as "TCP [Out-Of-Order] HTTP/1.1 200 OK (text/html)"
please explain what does it means ?

It simply means that particular frame was received in a different order from which it was sent (after a later packet in the sequence). It is not generally a problem. It probably indicates there are multiple paths between source and destination - and one travels a through a longer path. It means TCP has slightly more work to reassemble segments in the correct order.
