Thanks for the query.

In view of symptoms and absence of signs of infection , possibility which I can think is inflammation of urethral mucosa causing edema and mild narrowing of lumen leading to some urinary stasis within penile urethra(part of urethra proximal to tip).May be frequent masturbation has caused this.

Sometimes a stuck urinary stone can cause frequent urination.

Other possibility is of urethral stricture.But this cause seems less likely as generally this is caused by previous history of infections, trauma, interventions or catheterizations etc.

In my view you should give it some time to see if symptoms resolve on their own.Drink lots of water and withheld masturbation. If signs of infection develop later than consider a course of antibiotics.

And if symptoms continue after that then visiting a urologist would be ideal step.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Remedies like drinking lots of water and fruit juice can help.For strictures home remedies are unlikely to help , so if symptoms persist do consider to see doctor.
