Dark urine while having cold. Burning while urination. Reason?

I have been sick with a common cold for 4 days. When the cold started my urine became darker (almost light tea colored). I am drinking water and I do not have any pain in my back or while urinating. I also do not feel any burning while urinating. Can the common cold cause dark urine while the body it trying to fight off a virus?

Thanks for your query.You have a cold and noticed passing high colored urine.You do not have any urinary symptoms The high colored urine indicates concentrated urine and does not have any significance as log as you do not have any urinary complains.High colored urine can also be due to medication you may be taking for cold.Please drink more water This will settle down as you recover from cold.
