Welcome to HCM.

The urine report suggest urinary tract infection,you need to take antibacterial drug to reduce the infection and have plenty of fluids.If untreated you may develop fever associated with chills etc.For albumin in urine further evaluation of kidney function has to be done like serum creatinine to rule out kidney disorder.

Take care.
