In brief: Not usually
If you have any doubt, you can get a blood test that is more sensitive.

In brief: Henaturia, yes
If the UTI causes the urine to be so turbid from significant blood in the urine, the pregnancy test could read falsely negative if you are pregnant.
Otherwise, urine testing for the pregnancy hormone HCG is usually unaffected.
