Brief Answer:
Your symptoms Could be due to urinary stone

Hello
Thanks for your query ,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in lower back with hematuria.

This strongly suggests presence of stone either in kidney or Ureter.

If the pain is very severe and unbearable you should visit Er or else you can go to Urologist tomorrow morning for clinical and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
