Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

The presence of bacteria does indicate the presence of an infection. Also, the presence of blood could indicate either periods or the presence of other underlying problems (stones, tumor, etc.).

You could repeat a urine analysis, but if the result is the same, you should request for an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis. This would provide us with much more information.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
