Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. No, pus cells is high. Usually 2. You need to get an urine culture and based on that, specific antibiotic can be started.
3. Drink plenty of water in the mean time. In future maintain hygiene and drink plenty of water.

Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
