In brief: Unlikely
Unless the chlorine is at toxic levels in the pool it will not generally cause vaginal irritation.
Urinary tract infection will not be a direct result of chlorine exposure.

However, a different issue - wearing your wet bathing suit around can increase chance for yeast infection.
