A warning indicates that your item type was successfully migrated to the destination but a modification needed to occur to get it there, or something needed to be left out. A common example is a list that migrates successfully without a source field, because that field is not supported in the destination environment.
When warnings occur, it is almost always because something is not supported between versions, and the best solution is to manually create a substitute in your destination environment.
