1 doctor agrees

In brief: Highly unlikely

Typically urinary tract infection should not cause false pos or neg hpt.
Since you you only missed your period for 2-3 days, it is likely that it is a bit too early for the test to pick-up. I would repeat in 3-4 days. I would consult doc to have your UTI treated. In the meantime, more fluids, and otc uristat (phenazopyridine) may help with burning/urgency etc..Good luck.
