Your doctor SHOULD be the one to give you "some idea" of what's wrong.  In general, people with high blood pressure are at increased risk for kidney problems, which could be evidenced by an increase in protein and creatinine.  
But as some other conditions may also have these symptoms, you should really be following up with your physician.

Sorry, your doctor is your best resource.  Sounds like he's working you up for renal disease, so he's on top of it.  Good luck to you.
