Brief Answer:
Could be blood

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Dark colored urine could be blood. Any abnormal colored urine requires immediate evaluation. I suggest you to get it evaluated with a urine routine examination as soon as possible. Here is how you should go about it

1. Drink plenty of water and see if the color of urine gets better
2. do not travel until you get evaluated
3. watch out for drop in urine output and development of puffiness of face and edema of feet
4. do not engage in exercise until evaluation

I hope I was of help if you have any further queries please get back to me
