Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you may have
stone either in the kidney or ureter.
However this can be confirmed only on ultrasound scanning of the abdomen.

Please consult qualified urologist for clinical examination and get following tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1)Routine urine test and urine culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefotaxime along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.
