If the lines are going in the same direction as you are planing they could be plane tracks, the corners of the iron digging in. This can be countered by cambering the iron slightly or feathering out the corners when sharpening. Bear in mind that even with rounded corners there is still a transition from straight iron to curved iron, and there is pretty much no way to avoid it entirely.
If they are going across the direction of planing it could be chatter, either because the cap iron and plane iron don’t have a good fit or because the wood isn’t held securely enough.

There are other reasons too, more info or pictures would help.
