More than 2 to 4 RBC in semen or urine indicate infection, pus calls more than 1 to 2 and RBC in semen indicate infection. Since you can both increase. We need to rule out infection. Doing urine complete and urine culture sensitivity will help you diagnose. Yes, you can father a child, its a minor issue.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
