Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I have gone through your query, and the primary issue here is the orange color urine. Let me help by listing the conditions which can present in the form of an orange colored urine:
-Stones in the renal system
-Urinary tract infections (UTI)
-Kidney disease
-Liver disease or disorders
-Medications (eg. anti-tubercular medication like rifampin, etc.)

In my opinion, as you have been experiencing this for quite a few days, it is best to visit a doctor and get your urine analysed, followed by an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis.

In the meantime, please consume plenty of water and see if this clears. I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
