Hepatitis: See your doctor for a complete explanation. Bilirubin rises with over production (hemolytic problems) or failure to conjugate and/or excrete (liver problems). Proteinuria has many causes, glomulonephritis, caused by hepatitis could explain both. You need to see your doctor fo sort this out.

Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it would have helped if you had provided the actual results. Mild elevation in bilirubin may be benign Gilbert's syndrome. How much protein in urine?
