In brief: Most likely

Normal urine protein is up to 150 mg/24 hours.
Usual urine output is around 1-2 liters. At 60 mg/l in you case you will have a total of 120 mg/24 if your urine is 2 liters/day.

Agree with Dr. Sturia if one assumes that the 60mg/L result is constant. The problem is relevance to your medical condition, and for that further testing is necessary.

In brief: Proteinuria

This can be due to glomerular disease, to increased quantity of proteins in serum, or to to low reabsorption of protein by the proximal tubules.
This value is slightly high but has little meaning by itself without your medical history and other laboratory values and having the ability to examine you. If dissatisfied with your doctor's opinion get a second assessment.
