My mother's urinalysis' result are as follows: 20-30 RBC(/hpf), 1-2 WBC(/hpf), few epith cells, few mucus thread, albumin trace, 6.0 reaction, negative glucose, 1.025 spe.gravity, slightly hazy transparency, yellow color. What does this mean?

I think every hting is ok with your mather's urine test:
RBC/HPF (Red Blood Cells / High Power Field of Microscope):
There should be no more than 0 to 2 per high power field in the urine in men. A few red cells per high power field in women may not be unusual.
A trace amount of blood in your urine is normal. Blood in the urine is not always visible. If the amount of blood is small, the urine can look normal. This is called microscopic hematuria because the blood cells are visible only under a microscope.
When there is enough blood to be visible, the urine may look pinkish, red, or smoky brown (like tea or cola).
WBC/HPF (White Blood Cells / High Power Field of Microscope)
Usually it ranges from 0 to 6.
Epithelial Cells:
Renal tubular epithelial cells, normally slough into the urine in small numbers.
Mucus Threads:
This is a common finding in urine since the entire urine system is filled with mucus.
6.0 reactions:
Normal pH range in urine
• 0 - 7 acid
• 7 neutral
• 7 - 14 alkaline
There should be none present. Appearance of sugar is usually associated with diabetes or a renal filtering defect.
Spec. Gravity:
The results of specific gravity levels in urine Shows the concentrating and diluting ability of the kidneys.
Normal specific gravity range in urine is between 1.020 -1.030 g/ml, so don’t worry.
About the color of Urine:
Normal, fresh urine is pale to dark yellow or amber in color
Hazy Transparency: Turbidity or cloudiness may be caused by excessive cellular material or protein in the urine or may develop from crystallization or precipitation of salts upon standing at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Clearing of the specimen after addition of a small amount of acid indicates that precipitation of salts is the probable cause of turbidity.
