    Can be a bladder infection, I have one now, at least thats what the Dr. said hope that's all.
    Go to your doctor do not take advice from this site, well meaning as it may be. Most opinions are probably googled answer which you should have done not one person on this sit is qualified to diagnose you on line. I include doctors in that you can only be assessed face to face with a doctor.
    The causes of gross and microscopic hematuria are similar and may result from bleeding anywhere along the urinary tract. One cannot readily distinguish between blood originating in the kidneys, ureters (the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder), bladder, or urethra. Any degree of blood in the urine should be fully evaluated by a physician, even if it resolves spontaneously.

    Infection of the urine, stemming either from the kidneys or bladder, is a common cause of microscopic hematuria. Kidney and bladder stones can cause irritation and abrasion of the urinary tract, leading to microscopic or gross hematuria. Trauma affecting any of the components of the urinary tract or the prostate can lead to bloody urine. Hematuria can also be associated with renal (or kidney) disease, as well as hematologic disorders involving the body's clotting system. Medications that increase the risk of bleeding, such as aspirin, warfarin (Coumadin), or clopidogrel (Plavix), may also lead to bloody urine. Lastly, cancer anywhere along the urinary tract can present with hematuria.
    I have had blood traces in my urine for many yrs. have had my doc. to check it many times and he said some times a person may have traces of it because of phyical activity, but you should check in with a doc. to be safe
