56 year old female with 500+++ leukocytes in urine

Customer Question

56 year old female with 500+++ leukocytes in urine (non-clean catch). Also been having low back pain intermittently for the last month and a half. All else negative on urine dipstick. Do I need to go to the ER? My GYN has sent me for a UCulture with spin but in her office only the Nitrite came up positive: don't know if on her strips there was a leukocyte test? Thanks.
