In brief: See a urologist

It is possible that you have a neurologic issues affecting your bladder function as a result of the herniated discs.
You need to see a urologist so that the appropriate tets may be done. These tests may include further urine tetsing as well as a sonogram of the kidneys and bladder. Ultimately, you may need urodynamics testing to determine your bladder function. This may also help direct therapy.

In brief: Possibly.

Urinary frequency could be a result of your lumbar discs, but not burning on urination or foul smelling urine which would point to uti.
Frequency, urgency and possibly pain could indicate ovveractive bladder, interstitial cystitis or bladder stone. Best to get u/a off Pyridium (phenazopyridine) when urine has returned to yellow color. Then consider seing a urologist.
