Hello
Thanks for follow up .

Blood in urine (Hematuria ) is an alarming symptom and can be due to either infection of bladder (Cystitis or due to mass in bladder which needs to be investigated .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Endoscopic examination of bladder (Cystoscopy).

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.

In the mean while continue taking Macrobid along with Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkalizer thrice daily .

Ensure to drink more water to keep your urine dilute .
