Brief Answer:
Urinary tract infection.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Your urine analysis indicates urinary tract infection. Symptoms which can be present with such infection are lower abdominal pain, back pain, frequent urinating, burning while urinating.
There is nothing to be concern, however you need to get rid of it. To do that, you should be prescribed with an antibiotic (Ciprofloxacine 500 mg twice a day for 5 days should help). You should also drink plenty of mineral water and start cranberries supplements.
You should also check your blood sugar level as diabetes can give urinary tract infections.

After antibiotic treatment, urine analysis should be repeated. If bacteria or symptoms will be still present, urine culture test should be done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
