Normal Spot urine Protein/ Creatinine values depend on age. In children <0.5 and in adults <0.2 are normal. Your value, 32mg/78mg=0.4 is slightly impaired, meaning you have proteins in your urine.

Depending on your preexisting medical conditions, it has to be investigated and treated.

Your Spot Protein-Creatinine level is abnormal and you have Nephropathy. You need medications to decrease protein spilling by kidney.
