UTI Question

Sorry if I am in the wrong board,

So last week I started having a low grade fever on a daily basis with no other symptoms. I went to the walk in clinic to get tested for a UTI because I get them often and have no symptoms. The urinalysis showed that there was a little bit of blood, protein and bacteria in my urine and the practitioner called it a "mild" UTI. I was prescribed a 3 day dose of Sulfamethoxazole. I am on the second day of treatment and I woke up this morning with a fever again. Taking ibuprofen does break the fever. Without the fever I would have no symptoms of a UTI or any other infection other than a headache. I am concerned that this antibiotic is not working because I only have one day left of pills but I'm still getting a fever. I'm worried that this fever is being caused by something else. When would you go back to the doctor?
