These are normal results. Microscopic inflammation (white blood cells, i.e. "pus cells") or bleeding (RBC) occurs from time to time in entirely healthy urinary tracts. But why was the urinalysis done in the first place? If discharge, uncomfortable urination, or visible blood are present or show up in the future, repeat the urinalysis. If any doubt, see a doctor.
