Sometimes a trace of protein in the urine is an incidental finding. However higher levels of protein may indicate an infection or a kidney problem or even another systemic illness like diabetes etc. However a trace level of protein is not concerning. you may wish to get the urine checked at regular intervals to keep a look at the protein levels. All the best.
