Hi welcome to HCMForum. Usually we dont find the bacteria in usual urine examination. it needs special staining for that purpose. only some times bacteria may be apparent.
There could be extra renal lymphnodes which may not have relation with UTI. uti is a commen feature especially in girls. I advise you to consult a pediatrician .He will get the
urine culture
