In brief: UTI

Urinary tract infection (UTI) needs treatment with antibiotics or antiseptics.
Any infection has a small probability of resolving over time without antimicrobias, however, you are taking a risk and you may develop complications. Since you are lucky to have access to antibiotics for a relatively simple infection, seek help from a physician in your area

In brief: Unlikely

Probiotics are for preventative use and cranberry juice although a helpfull adjunct does not in itself get rid of and infection.
Best to get checked to make sure it is a UTI then get appropriate antibiotic treatment.
