Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
If you are symptomatic, it is better to get urine culture test done and if the result turns out positive, treatment is necessary.
If there are no symptoms at present, it is worthwhile repeating the test after a week and do urine culture test only if leukocytes are still postive.
Hope i have made things clear.
Wishing you good health--
Regards
DR GS
