In brief: You

You can try to flush it out with large amount of fluids (drink beverages) and drink acidic juice (cranberry, orange).
But if it doesn't resolve within hours, or if you have increased pain, if there is any chance you are pregnant, if you have vomiting, fever, or light-headedness, then you must be evaluated immediately. Uti's can become serious if not treated early so please don't wait.
