In brief: Likely nonspecific.
Protein in the urine can be nonspecific, or indicate a condition such as renal infections, diabetes mellitus, jaundice, or hyperthyroidism.
Blood in the urine can be from trauma, stones, infection, or a catheter, or if there is painless hematuria, or blood in the urine, it could indicate bladder cancer.

In brief: Probably nothing
Every lab has their own reference value for "abnormal" findings.
Most labs would say that 2 rbcs/hpf is in the normal range. Also, a lot of findings depend on how concentrated your urine is. One might see "trace protein" on the urinalysis if the concentration (estimated by the specific gravity) is high. It would make most sense to repeat the urine study when you are well hydrated.
