Hello I have gone through your query.

As the erythrocyte count is normal, you don't need to worry as hemoglobin sometimes found in urine could be because of false positive results which might occur because of high muscular activity, highly alkaline urine, ammonium compounds and oxidising agents.

Hope this helped you. You can write down if you have any other problem.
