Hi Friend..

I will help you knowing symptoms of Kidney infections and also colour of urine indicates probable cause of disease.

Yellow - Normal urine colour
White - Excess hydration
Red/Pink - Urinary Tract Infection /Kidney Stone (Hematuria)
Orange - Dehydrated
Brown -Very dense urine concentration, extreme dehydration; consumption of fava beans; melanuria (too many particles in urine); UTI; kidney stone; kidney tumor or blood clot; Addison’s disease; glycosuria; renal artery stenosis; proteinuria; pituitary problem (ADH, or antidiuretic hormone)

Black -Alkaptonuria, a genetic disorder of phenylalanine and tyrosine metabolism marked by accumulation of homogentisic acid in the blood; poisoning

Cloudy -Urinary tract infection, kidney problem, metabolic problem, or chyluria (lymph fluid in the urine), phosphaturia (phosphate crystals), pituitary problem (ADH, or antidiuretic hormone)

Foamy -Turbulent urine stream; proteinuria (most common causes are diabetes and hypertension)

An ammonia-like odour means your urine is concentrated and you may be dehydrated.
A foul odour could be blamed on infection-causing bacteria.
A sweet odour is often an indicator of uncontrolled diabetes or a metabolic disorder.
A musty odour may arise from a liver disease or metabolic disorder.

Hope I Provided Useful Information..
Take Care.
