I have to pee


Explanation:
Literally!
There is an i with accent missing from pipi'.

There was a famous children song some years back with the same title.

mi scappa la pipi


Explanation:
Yes - I've got to pee
or I'm bursting!
But it's not just for children - adults say it too, quite casually, to mean "I have to go to the bathroom".
Depends on the context.

I have to go to the loo


Explanation:
I would agree with the other suggestions - with the reservation that in context, the above phrase is used rather than a literal word-for-word translation.
