Do not worry: Those numbers are very low and likely are not significant. If you are having symptoms with your urination, let your doctor know to ask if he suspects an infection, but with those numbers it would be unlikely. Those numbers can also be affected by dehydration, so make sure you drink plenty of water daily. Also I see you take ibuprofen, make sure you are not over-dosing as this can cause bleeding.
