Urine: Albumin shows protein in the urine, leukocytes go with inflammation or infection, plus you have small amount of blood and white blood cells in the urine. All can go with a UTI. Was there nitrites in urine? Hopefully, they sent out a urine culture to check for infection. Follow up with your doc.

Irrelevant: this is a common urinalysis result, as it isn't a clean catch specimen, if you have symptoms you may need urine culture, wish you well
