Contaminated specime: The urine was clearly not collected using a clean midstream catch and is contaminated with vaginal secretions. A UTI with more than a single organism is a rarity and would have to be further evaluated by experts. Disregard these results, they mean nothing.

Ti is probably: not a good urine specimen and is contaminated (not a clean catch) with the large amount of epithelial cells and multiple organisms. You need a better quality specimen to be tested.
