You're in my urine?

What's that funny stuff floating in my pee, and is it related to this other issue? TMI inside.

So, I have a history of vuvlar irritation with no diagnosis as far as STI/UTIs are concerned. No funny vaginal discharge or weird smells. The irritation is sort of a burny pain near my urethra and up to my clitoris, and I also have some sensitivity near my g-spot, where it just feels slightly weird. Not bad or good, just weird. The pain and discomfort is pretty random. I'm not experiencing it now, nor do I experience it for most of the time. It's not caused by sex, and it doesn't hurt to pee.
Now, the stuff floating in my pee is colorless. It looks kind of swirly and very slightly opaque, if that makes sense. It's definitely very small whatever it is. It's there almost all the time, but I can't see it when my pee is very clear (i.e. when I'm hydrated), so I can't tell if it's *actually* there.
Any ideas? These have both been happening for a while. I've been tested negative for all manner of things for the irritation (UTI/STI/candida), but I've never brought up the pee thing. Obviously next time I will, but I wanted some opinions first. I have noticed the floaty things when I'm experiencing irritation, but also when I'm not. Could these be related? Is whatever is floating in my pee causing me problems at a higher concentration? What is that stuff in my pee? So far I've chalked up my irritation to either a sensitivity to dyes/perfumes/whatever in my hygiene products/detergent or to undiagnosed IC. I'm clueless otherwise. Thanks!
