In brief: Little concern
Group b strep is a very common bacteria in the vaginal tract that can sometimes be seen in the urine.
It only becomes an issue when you become pregnant in which case you will need to be monitored.

In brief: Very common
Gbs is common and generally doesn't cause health problems in adults, but could cause serious infections in newborns which is why we test for it.
If found, we simply treat the mother with antibiotics prior to or during delivery and most problems can be avoided.
