Brief Answer:
Get your urine analysed!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

Blood in urine could be caused by an infection, a kidney stone or hypertrophied prostate. I will like that you observe this again. Should it recur, then we would start by requesting a urinalysis. Further evaluation and plan would depend on these initial findings.

I hope this guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
