The label generally means that outlet is the 'regular' kind and is
connected upstream to a GFCI with the "Reset" and "Test" buttons
mentioned in another reply. The fun part is finding where this GFCI
What other outlets do not work? May give you an idea of where the
GFCI is located. What is on the other side of the bathroom wall?
Check at those outlets. Look at the basement ceiling - someone may
have spliced in a GFCI.

You'll know the GFCI outlet when you see it because it has two small buttons
between the two outlets. Check outlets that are near water: bathrooms,
kitchen, laundry area, garage.
My breaker panel is in the garage, and my primary GFCI outlet is right next to
the breaker box in the garage.
