Burning sensation in lower abdomen after urinating, orange clots. History of hypothyroidism. UTI symptoms?

I am sexually active. Diabetes runs in my family, as well as cancer . I have hypothyroidism and take pills for it. I am 18 years old. There is a burning sensation in my lower abdomen, right above my pubic bone after I urinate, and there are sometimes also small red/orange clots. I am pretty sure it is a UTI , but are these clots a sign of a kidney issue? Or something else... And how soon should I see a doctor before it gets too serious? This has been going on for 2 days.

thanks for your query
most common cause of blood in urine is UTI and as you tell that you are sexually active.chances to get urine infection are more.

but u should also exclude the other serious causes also like---
bladder stone
bladder cancer
kidney disease etc.

and finally you have to take care of UTI as early as possible
