Bacteria in urine: It may mean you have a urinary infection or the urine sat around for some time before it was examined. A urine culture would be more definitive for an infection.

Urine bacteria: If the urine was collected correctly, bacteria in the urine is a sign of a urinary tract infection (uti). Urine is sterile and if there are bacteria in it, you will need to have a culture sent off to find out what antibiotic can kill the bacterium that is causing your uti.
