Thank you for the query.

Blood in urine if not caused by a trauma is usually not an urgent condition. So urologist visit instead of ER sound reasonable.
However if this blood is present in the urine for days, or it will start bleeding more ample (so there will be plenty of fresh blood in the urine) you should not wait anymore. Also if the fever will appear, back pain, lower abdominal pain, shivers, it should force you to visit your doctor right away.
Otherwise you can wait.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
