Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Your report may indicate an UTI as it shows protein and lot of pus cells.
But sometimes a contaminated / improperly collected urine sample can look like this 9with pus cells, skin cells, mucus threads, urate crystals.
You may repeat a clean catch, mid-stream urine sample and ask doctor if it correlates with a clinical picture of UTI (fever, painful urination, frequency of urination, nausea, pain etc).
Do not worry. If confirmed to be a UTI, he will need antibiotic treatment.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this answer.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck! Thank you!!

Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, your urine analysis report indicates that pus cells are increased alongwith presence of RBCs and amorphous urates.

It indicates urinary tract infection.

You really need some broad spectrum antibiotic.
