Brief Answer:
It is indicative of infection

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for using Health care magic.

From the available description there is clear evidence of urinary tract infection. It is possible that it is sexually transmitted infections if you are sexually active.

I feel it will be better to see a doctor who will run some tests to identify the causative agent for infection. Once it is done a definite treatment can be started which mostly includes antibiotics.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
