Understanding variables in the 'Warm Up: Machine Learning with a Heart' competition

Hi,
I’m trying to understand the ‘resting_ekg_results’ variable in the dataset. It’s given that it is in integer format with values 0, 1, 2.
Is this supposed to be a categorical variable (factor in R)? If so, is it an ordered variable? Please suggest.

Thanks a lot in advance…
