Brief Answer:
It could be due to urinary tract infection.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

If she is having blood in urine,it is most likely due to urinary tract infection.
Drink a lot of warm water and keep the area dry and clean.
As her placenta is low lying,she should take proper rest and it will go up with time.
As blood drop in urine ,you just find out that it is not due to vaginal bleeding.
Hope found useful,feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
