In brief: Inflam/infection
Wbc casts in urine (clustering/clumping of white blood cells) often suggest some inflammatory process from your kidneys and/or bladder.
Simple urinary tract infections can also do that...Check with your doc who ordered it...

In brief: Kidney infection
Wbc casts in urine are a sign of infection of the kidney.
You should seek care and treatment to prevent the infection becoming chronic and causing lasting damage to your kidneys.
