in my psychiatric assessment, the doctor wrote substance is not coloring this clinical picture. What does he mean, I've been diagnosed with major depressive disorder.

Without any other context, it does not make any sense to me. Perhaps the doctor meant substance abuse. Whatever he meant by "substance," It is not a contributing factor in or does not affect the overall diagnosis.
