Brief Answer:
Possible infection, kidney stone or other. Needs labs.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health concern.

I read it carefully and I understand your concern.

You need to go to a local doctor to do a urine analyse, an ultrasound and other possible tests.
You need to rule out where is the blood coming from- infection, kidney stone or else.
Do this as soon as possible so you can start treatment.
Meanwhile, drink plenty of fluids.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need any more information.

Kind regards,
Dr.Papaqako
