In brief: Yes

If clean uncontaminated specimen examined and shows e.

In brief: E. Coli in urine

If you have e. Coli in your urine, you have a uti.
Your urine was cultured to tell you about the e. Coli. Speak to the physician who ordered the urine culture about the type of antibiotic you will need to treat it.
