UTI and No Symptoms?

Yesterday I went in to my regular dr. complaining of pain under my rib cage and having a 102 fever. My Dr. seemed to think that I was having some gallbladder issues and wanted me to go to the ER to have a sono and a possible x-ray to see what was going on.

I get to the ER have the sono, x-ray, IV, and some labs. All came back fine. Then I gave a urine specimen and it came back that I had a raging UTI. The nurse said my white blood cells were high and something else maybe keytones? I asked if it could be skewed because I was on my menstral cycle and he said no. So now I am on pain medication and antibiotics and have zero symptoms and still a nagging pain under my rib. I am not 100% convinced that I have a horrible UTI. Could this ER doc be wrong?
