Your urine is not clear as yet. You need to have urine culture sensitivty done and take the appropriate antibiotic as per culture sensitivity report.
In pregnancy small traces of albumin urine are expected. Swelling in feet is also expected in pregnancy because of the pressure effect on the pelvic veins, but you must get serum protein estimation done to rule out if you are not getting proteinurea due to kidney damage( glomerulo nephritis). Follow with a nephrologist to know the exact cause of proteinurea if your next urine examination is not clear of proteins.
