Following can be concluded from the given report.

1) GRAM STAIN REPORT : which shows presence of some gram positive and the gram negative bacteria - meaning you have mixed bacterial infection present.

2) WET MOUNT EXAMINATION : - There are presence of pus cell which means your are having an infection but the infection is not from the "TRICHOMONAS" or "FUNGUS". Simply confirms only bacterial infection is present.

Now the first test called gram stain is showing presence of bacterial infection and it will be treated with broad spectrum antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your concern
