Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
You are having hematuria.
This needs to be confirmed by a urine test.
The commonest cause being an infection or an enlarged prostate.
Stop taking alcohol and take plenty of rest.
Perform a urine test and an ultrasound and consult an urologist.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
