Probably: Kidney stones come in many sizes and shapes. 6 mm is not very large and should eventually pass. Straining urine with kitchen strainer every voiding should eventually catch the stone which likely will look like a blood clot. It can get hung up in the ureter causing significant pain. There are ways to get it out if trouble passing, see urologist for that.

Passed a 6mm kidney stone and still have brownish urine, what does this mean?

Unclear: This could be due to residual irritation of the urinary tract if you had blood initially. You should have a repeat urinalysis and urine culture, and then a hematuria workup (urine cytology, imaging ctscan, and cystoscopy=camera to look in bladder) at the discretion of your physician.

Borderline: Thus may or may not pass on its own. Drink lots of water & discuss with uirologist use of tamsulosin to help ureter to dilate & facilitate passage of stone. You may well require professional help if pain is severe &/or makes you vomit.

Altered renal blood: Quite common with or after passing kidney stone. Should clear up soon. Please keep your dr informed if it continues. Blood in urine is never normal and often not serious.
