If you didn't activated the Read-only option from its properties then the memory chip inside it is near death and the write protect is there to allow you to recover the files while you still can - activated automatically. Once you have done that just junk the stick, it's dead, time for a new one.

Suddenly my kingston data traveller 128GB shows write protected and does not store any information how do I start rewriting on this usb data traveller Thank you

You may have removed the data pen before it was ready, you may have to try formatting it, If you can still copy off the pendrive, i would remove what you want before trying to format it.
If you google your problem, it is very common, i would advise checking a few forums out first
