In brief: Several things

The kidneys serve as a sieve and metabolic control system. If the kidneys are damaged, it is possible that proteins, casts, and blood cell components will be seen in the urine.
This may be part of an infection or a more serious kidney damage. Further evaluation is recommended for this combination.

In brief: Disease

Blood and protein can result from infection, kidney stone, tumor, or primary kidney disease (glomerulonephritis).
