Time to see a urologist. You may require a cystoscopy to investigate the bladder. Sometimes, non-infectious causes will produce white cells without bacteria, such as interstitial cystitis.

Yes,


and you should take notice and be under a physicians care as this is not normal. One should examine the reasons for the UTI and certainly be immediately under antibiotic treatment.

Nitrates or nitrites


Nitrates can be normal in urine and often the result of protein metabolism. Nitrites can indicate infection. Without more information, in terms of other urine or laboratory markers, symptoms, etc. that is about all one can say with regard to this. If you are having symptoms or other issues you may want to see doctor for more help.

Alkaline urine


If there is an obstruction between the infection and the bladder, the urine may be unremarkable. A very alkaline urine with infection suggests Proteus which produces urease that splits urea into ammonia that makes the urine alkaline.
