In brief: Certainly not
Can be due to so called "amorphous debris" which is innocent sediment often found in alkaline urine.
Chyluria can also cause a milky cloudy urine. Chyle is a substance comprising lymph plus fatty material. Can occur during pregnancy and number of other medical conditions permitting lymph to leak into the urine. Utis are usually symptomatic, but, not always.

In brief: Possible infection
Cloudy urine can be caused by an infection, kidney damage, protein in the urine, and sediment from a stone.
See your doctor for confirmation and possible treatment.
