Since you are on this post, Klebsiella pneumonia can be normal bacteria in your intestines. It can also cause urinary tract infections, infections in wounds and sometimes pneumonia in immunocompromised people. So, the fact that you have a Klebsiella sp. in your urine isn't surprising if you have an infection there as it is a relatively common organism for a urinary tract infection. It is unlikely you would get pneumonia from it.
