Macbeth's reaction was to question the truth of the witches' prophecy, and to note that the Thane of Cawdor was still alive. He also looks to the rest of the prophecy, understanding that the best was still to come.

Glamis, and thane of Cawdor!

The greatest is behind. (to ROSS and ANGUS) Thanks for your pains. (aside to BANQUO) Do you not hope your children shall be kings, When those that gave the thane of Cawdor to me Promised no less to them?
