Nothing or something: If it's not causing you any symptoms, you don't necessarily have to do anything at the moment. If it starts to give you problems (pain, kidneys stop working, etc) then you can have it broken up with shock waves or directly surgically removed (likely the best option for a lower-pole stone). Definitely need to see your doc (and possibly a nephrologist) for this one.
