Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The brown color of urine can be due to many reasons: it might be due to some food or drinks we might have had but an important cause to be ruled out is the presence of blood in the urine. Blood in the urine may be from infection or urinary stones so it is important to have a urinalysis to check for blood, protein and WBC. These will be able to differentiate if there is infection present or not and if there is blood or not. According to the urinalysis the doctor will have to decide on the further steps. If the urinalysis is normal (there is no infection or blood present in urinalysis) then it is very likely that you are not having enough liquids. So you need to increase the amount of water you are drinking. The urinalysis will also show high density in case you are drinking less than you need.

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