Never diagnose urinary infection only based on pus cells in urine.. always get the culture done from a good lab. Any kind of fever can have few pus cells in urine. Once urine infection is confirmed , it should be evaluated thoroughly as if left untreated or partially treated it may lead to kidney failure in later life. Meet the nearest Pediatric Nephrologist

It is suggestive of Urine infection. It's not dangerous. If your child is suffering from fever, frequent urination or pain or burning during urination, stomach pain, nausea or vomiting, she may have to be treated with antibiotics.
Also ensure that she drinks plenty of fluids throughout the day, which will help relieve her of the infection and also prevent future recurrences
