In brief: Proteinuria

A small amount of proteinuria (protein in urine) from time to time usually doesn't mean anything important.
There are many kinds of infections and kidney diseases that can cause larger amounts or continued presence of protein, some of them quite serious. Without more information, there's no way to even guess the cause in any one person. Discuss with your doctor. Good luck!
