In brief: Maybe nothing
Often, bulging veins in your calves are completely normal, especially if you are slender and exercise frequently.
On the other hand, bulging veins can be a sign that you have underlying vein trouble that you can't see, even if your veins don't hurt. An ultrasound evaluation of your veins will tell you what is going on. I would see a vein specialist for a check up and treatment if indicated.

In brief: Needs evaluation.
Bulging veins can be normal in some instances but if they are both bulging and look like grapes or rounded elevations then they are considered varicose and abnormal.
Abnormal veins should be evaluated by a vein specialist and you should have a venous reflux ultrasound to evaluate the status of the veins.

In brief: Varicosities se vein
Firstly you need evaluation by venous Doppler Sonogram to define the cause and then a treatment plan can be established
