One of these is the local port, and the other is the remote port. Which is which depends on the direction the packet travelled.

>> also how can i display the packet data in hex?

The data can be found immediately after the TCP header. Just skip the appropriate amount of bytes (using tcphdr->doff), and display the data found there in hex.
