General Surgeon 's  Response
in female baby few pus cells(1-2) can be there as female urethra is small.In male generally no pus cells are seen . I don`t think you should worry about it ,as new born baby getting UTI is quite less.Disclaimer

Pediatrician Dr. Kamlesh Verma's  Response
why u go for urine test of baby.
if baby has burning sensation at the time of urination, increased frequency of urine, these symptoms indicate urinary tract infection (UTI). in UTI pus cells usually > 10/hpf. in normal urine 0-3/hpf pus cell may be there.
give plenty of fluid to baby to prevent from UTI. keep genital hygiene properly by washing them properly at time of motion.
