It means your baby is taking a backseat to the placenta. The term "anterior placenta" refers to the location of the placenta within your uterus
If, however, you have an anterior placenta that is also lying quite low in your uterus( as in you )it could partially or completely block off the cervix (and the baby's way out), a condition called placenta previa (which can make a cesarean section necessary). But again, because the placenta generally migrates around in the uterus quite a bit during pregnancy, a low-lying placenta will very often have moved into the upper part of the uterus — and safely out of the baby's way — by the time you're ready to deliver. 
Your fluid levels are normal
There is no extra precaution you are supposed to take
