I could guess,  but I'm just guessing.  Looks like you may have a very mild bladder infection.

Since you got the results from your doctor,  can you call the nurse and ask what all this means?

I am trying to contact nurse, but haven't got any response from them yet.

And these results are making me more and more anxious related to me and my baby's good health :(

If anyone can explain me the severity of each terms used in the report like the WBC count, RBC count, High Squamous Epithelial Cells count etc

I agree with RockRose, those numbers indicate a very mild infection. Your WBCs and RBCs are slightly elevated, but only slightly. Those are what indicate infection along with the small presence of blood in your urine.
Your epithelial cell count is perfectly within the normal range and everything else looks great. They may throw you on some antibiotics, but it wouldn't cause any harm to either of you. Try the nurse again in a bit, but it looks as if there's nothing to worry about really.

Sometimes pregnancy can cause slight inflammation and blood in urine. Also if you had sex a day or so before it can show blood in urine. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Like the others said, even if it is a little infection they will just give you antibiotics. I have always had a little blood in my urine even before pregnancy and they ran tons of test and dr. Just said it's my normal.
