Dear Bella..
The presence of pus cells in urine is called Pyuria & it indicates the presence of on going infection/inflammation in the Urinary tract.

The treatment involves:
1. Drinking lots of water (it dilutes the urine & reduces the burning sensation)
2. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports.
3. If there is associated fever, then paracetamol 500 mg three times in a day can be added.
One more thing...avoid acidic foods, carbonated drinks and alcohol...& maintain good hygiene.
There is no need to will perfectly alright after taking the course of antibiotics.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
