24 Hrs Urine Protein not in normal range

I have SLE since last 4 yrs in control with 5 mg wisolone & 200 mg HCQS but started facing issue like mouth ulcer from last month, my reumatologist asked for CBC & 24 hrs Urine Protein Test, CBC is almost well, creatinine also normal but Protein traced very high. I am worrying about whether this is due to active SLE or kidney is affected .. if anyone has idea please let me know ...
