Thanks for your query.

It is not uncommon to see silver flakes, because silver flakes can be sometimes normal as a process of normal turnover of the urinary system and the urine contains various bits of white blood cells and other exudate, varying with your diet and fluid intake. Knowing that you have no other symptoms, try drinking plenty of water. Should be enough for the moment.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
