Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have hematuria .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have pain in abdomen or loin ?
2) Do you have any urinary symptoms like increased frequency for urination ,burning urination etc ?
3) Do you have fever and vomiting ?

This could be mostly due to UTI or presence of stone either in kidney or ureter.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis
1) Routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.
2) Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen and pelvis to rule out stone

Please start taking broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefexine along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.
