hello. welcome to HCM.
WBC of 6-8 , is not significant if you are asymptomatic and other parts of urine analysis is normal. It signifies mild infection. You can get rid of it by drinking loads of water per day. In case any burning sensation continues further, you can take broad spectrum antibiotics and get repeat test after 15 days.
Take care
