In the US not UK, suppose that a person asks you "Excuse me, where's the bathroom?"
And you say "That's there"
This is my question:
How will you know if he/she wants to defecate or take a shower?
I think Sarah means a bathroom can be consisted of two rooms and one room has a toilte while other has a shower.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

But maybe the American I'm talking to is far from me and is not my guest. I mean maybe he's on the internet chatting to me. I'm in Iran and he is in the USA. He types "Excuse me, I need to go to the bathroom"
On that time, I want to know if he means he wants to take a shower or he wants to defecate. I want to know on that time whether I'm to wait for him or go and come back after twenty minutes. I hope you understand me now.
