In brief: Probably infection

Increased urinary urgency, increased urinary frequency, and discomfort when urination are all signs of a urinary tract infection (uti).
If symptoms of UTI are present, a simple lab test of the urine can be done, and if confirmed, can be typically treated quite readily with antibiotic medication., .

In brief: Bladder infection

It's possible that you have a bladder infection.
Your bladder becomes inflamed in an infection and gives you the feeling that you have to go even when you don't. You should see your doctor for a simple urine test which can tell whether you need antibiotics or not.
