Hi,
     Thanks for writing in. Presence of hyaline casts, RBC casts, WBC casts and bacteria is considered abnormal. Normally the urine might contain WBC around 0-5/LPF. But in case they are in large numbers this suggests urinary tract infection.

  Leukocyte esterase is a screening test used to detect a substance that suggests there are white blood cells in the urine, which likely means a urinary tract infection. This test is part of the routine urine dipstick test. If this test is positive, the urine should be examined under a microscope for white blood cells and other abnormalities associated with infection.

It also depends on how the sample has been collected. Do you experience any burning sensation while passing urine, frequency, urgency, discharge from the urethra etc? Repeat the urine test and visit a urologist for further assistance.

All the best.
