I ran your test recording thru Checker and found that your format is set correctly. However, your volume at 97.8 needs to come way down to around 89, +-2. And your background noise at 48.1 is very loud. Not only background hum but there are many distracting sounds.

I recommend you find a quieter place to record, then set your gain lower on your mike (or in Audacity if you are using that), or both, and try again.
Then, use your Noise Reduction Effect to remove some, not all, background noise. If you don't know how to do this, here's a little video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw
