This means that there were some white blood cells in your urine. If you are female, white cells from the vagina or the opening of the urethra can contaminate the sample. If there was only a trace, then this could be the reason. If you are male, this can also occur because of contamination. If there was more than a trace, your doctor would do further testing as this can mean kidney disease or an infection of the kidney, bladder, or urinary tubes.
