Unlikley: You probably do not have usual bacterial infection, but it does not mean that there is no problem with the urinary tract. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests.
