Hello shumaila;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Pus cells in urine is a sign of infection in urine ;if the pus cells are 2-4 then it is fine if they are more than 6 you have infection.But it is also necessary to see if you have any symptom like increased frequency of urine or burning in it.As for pain in abdomen please consult a doctor nearby to find the reason;he will examine you and prescribe the necessary medicines.
Thanks

If you have underwent a Urine test and it showed Pus cells, it could be Urinary tract infection. If you have no burning sensation on passing urine, no lower abdominal pain or fever, it is not required that you take treatment immediately. Drink plenty of water and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. In case you develop burnign sensation, you may consult your Urologist who will put you on antibiotic and Potassium citrate syrup after doing a Culture and Sensitivity test on the Urine sample.
