Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query.
Pus cells in urine commonly indicate a UTI. The test to confirm or rule out a UTI is urine culture.
You need to see a physician or a nephrologist who will guide further therapy according to the results. Also an ultrasound of the kidneys may help to determine if you have any underlying structural abnormality.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
