Dreams are the way we process our subconscious. You haven't exactly specified what position the person you're dreaming about holds in your life, but if it's minimal, I'd say forget it. Your recurring dreams are most likely processing the fact that you had a dream about something less-than usual.
If this 'thing/person' means something to you, however, I'd advise that you investigate the meaning behind it. Why are you questioning its existence in your life?
When you no longer want to dream about this, think about it at length before bed. Transferring the thoughts from our sub- to conscious will allow them to pass through the dreaming mechanism.

It really doesn't mean a whole whole lot, it just means that your mind is fixated on some thing/person. If your dreams are reoccuring, I would assume that you are very fixated on some thing/person.
