What is the meaning of negative and positive in photography?

A negative is that which you make a positive image from by passing light through it. Usually this is done by passing light through it onto the medium which will become the positive (usually by way of chemical treatment). Daguerrotypes are an example of a negative made to look positive by way of passing light through the negative and back from a shiny (copper) surface behind it. Negatives are obviously not simply a color reversal thing, as black and white negatives do not represent the "opposite" or "reverse" of any color as the previous answer suggested.A positive is the final image as noted above. In addition to prints made from negatives, positives can be made of film, as in slides (aka transparencies). Again, a positive is not simply a true representation of actual color since a positive can also be made from black and white film.
