Twenty Four Hour protein levels in my pregnancy

Patient : I am 33 years old and 15 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. I am a high risk pregnancy bc of previous pre-eclampsia in one pregnancy and my last baby was pre-mature at 32 weeks. My doctor did a 24 hour urine protein on me..and today she said it came back at a 297? She said its a baseline.. She didnt seemed concerned at all...My blood pressure is within normal range and has been thus far. Is that protein number a concern for my kidneys? Is it a outside the GYN OB area? Im just confused..any info would be great thanks you Melissa
