I've had mixed growth in a few of my samples in the past. Sometimes it can just be nothing more than a bit of discharge mixed into the urine (which is why it's good practise to either wipe beforehand or give a mid stream sample), but other times it may be caused by a UTI for which you will need medication to clear up. With the repeat sample, try collecting mid stream to bring down the risk of contamination.
