Detailed Answer:

Thank you for consulting HealthcareMagic!

First of all we need to confirm the presence of blood and then look for the cause for it. There are many causes for it like bladder infection, kidney stones, glomerulonephropathy, tumor in urinary sytem (rarely). Though, most of the times it will not be a serious cause, every serious cause needs to be ruled out. For this, you may need complete urine examination, ultrasound abdomen/pelvis etc, based on physical exam findings.

Also, you need to keep a check on your diabetes, high BP both of which are high risk factors for kidney problems.
