Brief Answer:
should resolve on its own

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Urinating involves increased pressure to allow the urine to come out. Coughing is also associated with an increase in pressure (this is the reason it can worsen hernias).

This may have caused the bleeding to occur. It is likely that it would resolve on its own completely. If you notice any discoloration due to the bleeding, this would normally resolve within a few days, color changes may occur as the blood breaks down.

If you remain concerned then you should see your doctor for assessment.

I hope this helps,feel free to ask any other questions
