I have a little bit of blood in my urine, what could it be?

i have a little bit of blood in my urine, what could it be? i wiped some on toilet paper and it was a faint orange color, so it was not much, i 1st noticed it this morning when it hurt to pee, the pain was a decent amount, i got back from school and went to the bathroom again and it hurt again but a lot less than this morning. there is no one with diabetes in my family, so it might be UTI (even though i have never had sex).

First of all get your urine examination done to confirm whether it is urine in blood or some thing else.Most common cause for blood in urine is calculus.common cause varies from male to female. UTI can cause blood in urine,but not the commonest cause .So to know the cause complete urine & sonography is required .Treatment depends on the cause .Start taking plenty of liquids it will definitely help you.
