In brief: Proteinuria is.

Preeclampsia is a placental disease that manifests in both maternal and fetal circulations and typically causes new or worsening maternal hypertension and proteinuria.
Delivery is the only ultimate treatment, although immediate versus delayed may be an option depending on your gestational age and manifestations. Seek high-risk onstetrical care (maternal-fetal medicine specialist). Good luck!
