Hi Santos,
Thanks for writing your query.

RBC are red blood cells which may be normally present in urine sample during mensturation perids in females. You can repeat your sample after few days if you are mensturating.

Mucus threads may be normally present in the urine.
Presence of bacteria along with WBC, albumin, RBC and mucus threads indicates towards infection in the urinary tract.

It is advisable that you should get Culture/Senstivity of your urine sample done .

You should drink lot of pure water as this will help in curing mild infections of the urinary tract.
Also get yourself examined by a physician.

Treatment can be planned according to the culture/senstivity reports of the urine.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Presence of albumin and bacteria in the urine is indication to the presence of infection in the urinary tract.The abdominal pain you have could also be due to the same.

You may have to be placed on antibiotics to get treated.Do consult your treating doctor who can examine you and place you on suitable antibiotics.

Wish you good health.
