In brief: UA and urine Cx

You need to have urinalysis and urine culture to confirm UTI and identify the organism and its sensitivity pattern that will help in modifying antibiotics.
If repeated uti's in a female; tests to identify the etiology are needed such as ultrasound of kidneys or other tests.

In brief: Urinalysis

Any urgent or a primary care office should carry out a quick urine dip to determine an uti.
An official test would be a urine culture which takes longer. Otherwise your clinical symptoms such as burning, frequency, urgency, chills, fever and hestinancy would increase likelihood.
