Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Sorry for the delay. I didn't received any information till now.

Your urine test is negative for infection and the culture suggest E coli which is sensitive to about 20 drugs.
So if no clinical features of infection then no need to take any drugs as the e coli is present most cases and is common occurence. Only if you have clinical features like fever, burning sensation, Irritation or others. You can be put on any drugs that are sensitive.

The nausea can be due to other causes. Need not be related to urinary tract infection. May be due to gastric problem or indigestion or anxiety.
No need to worry for septicaemia, as this presents with high grade fever and associated with other problems related to infection. You be relaxed. For nausea have good nutritious diet, there shouldn't be hypoglycemia or hyperglycaemia. If severe then take anti emetic like domperidone and this will help you.

I hope this information helps you and answered your questions. Feel free to ask for any further queries.

Wish you good health.

Regards
