It's a security measure from Bittrex.  When you access your account from home (or wherever you regularly access it from), you have a certain IP address which would usually stay the same.

If an attacker was trying to access your account, they would most likely be doing so from a different IP address, so Bittrex is trying to verify that it's really you who is trying to access your account.

It seems like they only added this recently.  They always used email verification for withdrawals, but since people have started manipulating funds in accounts for pump and dumps and other shady activity, Bittrex is just trying to keep your account safe.

Since it is you accessing your account, it's nothing to worry about and you should just do what Bittrex says to verify the new IP address (in my case, it was clicking a link in my email).
