Put some fun toys in the cage. Rabbits love to chew so provide some sturdy branches of orchard woods (apple, pear, plum, cherry) or you can purchase commercial rabbit chews from a pet store.

Why did my bunny pee on me?
If a bunny pees on you, he’s claiming you as his. When a bunny is in love, he will pee on his loved one. Buns also like to pee where the scent of the loved one is especially strong -like beds or sofas or clothes that have been worn. Peeing on stuff is a way of claiming the places or items.
