Thank you for your query
You should definitely get an ultrasound done. If anything abnormal comes out then she may require further tests. Such symptoms are commonly seen in a urinary tract infection. However once the infection has been taken care of she should be free of this urgency and dribbling. Unless there is an underlying cause for these symptoms. It is advisable that you consult a pediatric surgeon for the same
Hope that helps\\
God bless you
