Classically, : Classically, the symptoms of a urinary tract infection involve burning with urination, needing to go frequently and feeling an "urgency" when you have to go. That being said, this is the most common presentation, but everyone is different and not everyone will have the same symptoms. Also, if you just started having symptoms, the burning is usually the first symptom to appear. Your best bet is to be seen by your doctor. They will be able to test your urine to see if you have an infection. If you do not have a urinary tract infection, they may be able to tell what else is going on to cause your discomfort. Good luck!
