What are cellular casts in urine?

Just wondering.... I did a 24 hr urine test which came back fine for not much protein in my urine at all, nothing abnormal actually except my total volume for the day was like 1500 mL more than is normal for my height and weight.

I did notice though and have noticed before in the toilet that I see white things in my urine frequently, almost every time I pee. They vary in size but they are visible and white and like little clumps. Is this mucous?? Is this normal?? I've heard about cellular casts but don't know if they're visible to the naked eye and if they occur when there isn't protein in the urine.

One other question. My 24 hour protein amount was "unable to calculate" I'm assuming because it was such a small amount?? What do you think about that? Do I need to have my test redone?

Big loves!
