Brief Answer:
yes, take him to an urgent care right away

Detailed Answer:
This can be a problem with the kidney so he needs to see a doctor right away. If you cannot get him in to see his pediatrician immediately he will need to go to an urgent care or emergency.
He does not necessarily need to see a urologist.
An internist or emergency doctor should be able to figure out what is going on and get him treatment.
If they feel it is serious they will make a referral to a urologist
I hope he is better soon
