Can't tell in forum: You need to see your doctor if you suspect a possible urinary tract infection vs pregnancy. A urine sample will be able to distinguish between the 2 conditions right away.

Could be both: If your period is 2 days late the first step is to check a pregnancy test. I kidney infection can typically diagnosed with a ua and physical exam. I would encourage you to seek evaluation.
