Thanks for posting your query.

The problem that you had is not uncommon.

There could be many reasons for blood in semen.

Anything related to male genitourinary system can lead to this.

The reasons could be many, some of them are,

There can be infection any where in the tract (urethra, prostate, seminal vesicles)
Trauma somewhere in tract may be due to some procedure or otherwise
Some condition of prostate
Stone in the tract (seminal vesicles)

There is no reason to worry. By and large this is rarely associated with significant pathology, especially in younger men.

It is better that you visit a urologist for this and get your self evaluated to have a piece of mind.

Looking to your age and absence of any other problem, I do not see any reason to worry.

Urologist after examination may advise some tests, like urine test, ultrasound and other tests as per the need.

Management depends upon the diagnosis.

You can continue your normal routine in mean time.

I hope this answers your query, I will be glad to reply any follow up queries that you have.

In case you do not have follow up query, please accept the answer.
