pus cells are decreased means your urine infection is getting cured .epithelial cells are shaded mucosal cell after attack of urine infection .you must be happy that you are getting rid of urine infection .

Welcome to HCM.
This is most probably UTI.
Need culture test and appropriate antibiotics.
Since you are pregnant, it is wise to take half the dose for the full pregnancy till delivery.
