It means you should ask your doctor what it means. It could mean many things or nothing significant

If you are dehydrated your protein level may appear higher than it is. Dehydration may also lead to higher albumin levels. Making sure you have had enough water before the test will give an accurate result.

What does it mean when your ag ratio is high?
High A/G ratio: This can be a sign of disease in your liver, kidney, or intestines. It's also linked to low thyroid activity and leukemia. If your doctor feels any of your levels are too high or low, you may need to have more precise blood or urine tests.
