Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my ability.

No, as far as I know and I also checked around to make sure IgM doesnt increase due to running, it usually increases as a result of an infection or liver disease (they are the two leading causes)
Dont worry too much about the hematuria, sometimes after heavy workouts it happens and we still havent managed to find out why.
Other than this your protein values are in the normal range.
As such have another check up done in around a week to see whether your IgM levels have normalized or not, because I believe they are due to some infection. If you feel your condition worsen, go as soon as possible, but I dont think that will happen.

I hope this answered your question.
