A wet dream is when semen is discharged from the penis during ejaculation while a boy, usually of adolescent age and older, is asleep. Semen is a combination of seminal fluid and sperms. There is nothing unhealthy or wrong about ejaculating while you are asleep. It tends to happen to boys going through puberty, and the frequency reduces as you grow older. Wet dreams do not mean you are necessarily ready to engage in sex, but they are a sign that you can make a girl pregnant. If you experience a wet dream, clean up yourself and your bed.
