Brief Answer:
Urine report is suggestive of infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The blood report shows low hemoglobin most likely due to iron deficiency anemia. The urine report shows pus cells and RBC which is suggestive of urinary tract infection.

Here, I would suggest you to consult a pediatrician for further evaluation like blood iron profile, urine culture report, ultrasound KUB and management accordingly.

In most of the cases it improves with treatment with antibiotic, plenty of fluid and iron supplementation.

Hope I have answered your query.
