Thanks for posting your query.
The mild spotting that you have noticed after peeing may be due to the impending period or a mild bleeding or any pain in the lower abdomen.
In case the bleeding happens again then a vaginal swab culture and urine culture and sensitivity are recommended after a direct examination to detect any infection.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
