Uti an cause blood in the urine; this should clear up once the infection has been controlled which can take one to two weeks. Then get another urine test done. If the red cells(blood) in the urine persists then you should go see a urologist to make sure that your bladder is healthy and cancer free. It is unlikely that you have bladder cancer.

Microhematuria in a 34 year-old female who has never smoked is not very likely to be due to bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is not really genetic in nature. Despite that, you should have a hematuria workup which would include imaging of your kidneys as well as a cystoscopy and a variety of possible urine studies.
