No need to start 2 antibiotics.Only one antibiotic can be given for 10-14 days.Repeat urine culture.do the follow up.if second UTI occurs do USG abdomen, MCU to rule out reflux.If second culture come positive give Injectable antibiotics.Before all these things collection of urine sample has to be supervised.
