8 yr old has urinary infection, strong pain, sore ribs, blue fingertips and lips. Kidney or liver infection ?

My 8 yo daughter has has a urinary infection which has become a kidney infection . In addition she has strong pain and a sore rib due to something happening with her liver . We had done bloods today. However, her lips are slightly blue, as are her fingertips. Is this related? Does this warrant an immediate trip to her doctor?
