e. coli in the urine samle means that you have an infection in the bladder. This is the most common cause of UTIs. If this is a recurrening thing for you, you may need to be evaluated by a urologist to see if you need to have a CT scan of the abdomen to rule out kidney stones as a possible cause.Hope this helps.
