In brief: Maybe

You can have a UTI with minimal symptoms such as urinary frequency.
May also have cloudy or foul-smelling urine. Worth getting a urinalysis.

In brief: May be a sign

One of the symptoms of urinary tract infection is frequency which you pee more than usual but having urinary frequency can be caused by many other medical problems or even a physiologic response such as drinking a lot in a short period of time.

In brief: Possibly

Urinary frequency can be a symptom of a urinary tract infection (uti), however, similar symptoms can be found with uncontrolled diabetes.
An analysis of your urine can be performed by your primary care physician to better evaluate the cause of the increased urination.
