Hello yeshagen
Welcome to HCM
you were on 7 days of antibiotic therapy for UTI and the report you have mentioned.
As per report urine is showing a little of infection with normal specific gravity. But as its showing few bacteria and 3-5 pus cells even after 7 days of antibiotics so there is some residual infection in urine, kindly wait for culture reports, as after delivery pus cells and RBC may be seen in normal conditions also.
So discuss with your doctor and get your culture reports.
Thanks Hope I cleared your doubt.
Take care
