Can't explain everything because I don't know all the stats. Will focus only in what I think is more important:
Page life expectancy - "“Number of seconds a page will stay in the buffer pool without references”:So, a bigger the number, better. Means that your pages stays longer in the buffer. In you case 81396 seconds / 60 seconds = 1356.6 minutes. For sure you wasn't facing a memory pressure here. For example, a value of 300 is 5 minutes (300/60).
Memory Grants - 5 process acquired memory and 2 still in Pending state. You may have locking problems here.
Top Memory Consuming Components - This graph shows the components that are consuming more memory and OBJECTSTORE_LOCK_MANAGER is on the top. So, I think you really facing locking issues.

Can't say much more because I usually don't use the reports for checking the SQL Server memory usage.
Only a call of attention for your SQL Server memory configuration. It's 16GB reserved for it and it's using around 5GB. If it's a 16GB RAM machine you should let some free memory for the OS, so configure the max server memory and don't let it with the default value (2TB) that means consume all available memory.
