In brief: Usually nothing

A heart rate of 57 is usually normal especially if you are active and exercise frequently.
However, if your hr has suddenly dropped to the 50's it could mean something. Certain rhythm issues or medications can cause slow heart rates. Often these people will have dizziness, fatigue, or near fainting associated with this. If you are concerned your doctor should be able to help you figure it out.

If you're asking what is meant by "heart rate", it means the number of times your heart is expected to beat within one minute, it's often labeled, b.p.m. In this case, your heart is measured as having 57 beats in one minute, which is usually OK for someone at rest.
