A mutation is a random change in the genetic sequence of DNA. Examples of such mutations include point mutation (such as addition or deletion of bases).

Errors in DNA replication can actually cause these mutations.

If a mutated sequence is then replicated, this could cause incorrect proteins to be made (due to errors in the primary sequence).
