In brief: Yes

This medication can interfere with some testing but not with culture and microscopic exam. If you have concerns, get checked.

Perhaps only the dip stick portion. The lab can look at the urine under the microscope for white blood cells and bacterial and the urine can be cultured..

In brief: Await yellow urine

Orange color from Pyridium (phenazopyridine) can confuse urinary dipsticks.
Urine test after return o yellow color should be reliable.
