Maybe: Depends if you are symptomatic. Some older people, usually females, may have something called asymptomatic bacteriuria (urine tests performed by medical doctor may show an infection however the patient does not have bothersome urinary symptoms such as burning, frequency, pain). Treatement for patients with "dirty" urine tests that appear infected without symptoms is generally not recommended.
