Warning while submitting sitemap in Google Webmaster

I’m wondering if anyone can help me with this. I was submitting my sitemap in Google Webmasters and got this message when I clicked on the ‘test sitemap’ button -Warning - URL blocked by robots.txt.

When I located my robots.txt file, this is what I saw in the robots.txt file -


User-Agent: * Disallow: /category Disallow: /tag Disallow: /author Disallow: /?s=*


Does anyone know what is the implication of this and how I should fix it please? Thanks, Saima
