Yes, it is filtered out and reabsorbed if necessary.

Glucose is always reabsorbed. (in a normal person)

Yes, if you are diabetic, there will be glucose in your urine.

From what I know, Glucose is filtered from the blood in the Glomerulus. The Bowman's Capsule then collects the blood filtrate (containing Urea, Glucose and Water) and the Tubules and Blood Capillaries re-absorb the Glucose into the blood again.
