Dear Craigs, hello
Please write the complete urine report. You have not mentioned how many RBC (Red Blood Cells) were present. Also mention the pH of your urine sample.
Blood in urine can be noted in females if the sample is collected during menstural periods.
It will be advisable that you should drink plenty of pure and filtered water. This will help in reducing the slight infection, if present.
Hope this is helpful to you.
