Irregular periods, have PCOS. On amoxicillin for ear infection. Frequent brownish spotting while urination. Need immediate care?

I am 29, I have been diagnosed with PCOS, I just had an ear infection in which I was on amoxicillin for ten days. I don't have regular periods, I'm not on birth control or any medication other than my albuterol inhaler and I have been having severe lower back pain near my kidneys. When I urinate, there is bloody mucus/tissue in the toilet and sometimes when I wipe. This isn't the first time this has happened and I wasn't on any kind of medication then. It actually happens pretty frequently, sometimes without the back pain. What could be happening and is it serious enough to go to the ER?

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Blood in the urine is called haematuria. It can be related to a number of different conditions such as : (1)trauma to any aspect of the urinary tract,
(4)blood disorder,
(5)any masses or growths in any aspect of the tract,
(6)inflammatory kidney disease.

You should go and see a doctor for assessment which may include urine analysis, urine sent to the lab for culture to rule out infection ( it would also be viewed under the microscope the identify any particles).
Imaging tests may also be necessary.

I hope this helps
