Need a confirmatory: test. The diagnosis of Cushings needs to positive screening tests, because sometimes you can get a false positive. The other screening tests include a Dexamethasone suppression test or midnight salivary cortisol. If the confirmatory test is elevated, then it is highly likely that you have cushings.

Blood in urine: Sexual activity can provide access of bacteria into the tube which leads from the bladder to the outside. Women can also get urinary infections from vaginal bacteria migrating into the urethra. A "1+" level of RBC's is not high, but should be tested for infection. See your healthcare provider for urine culture and possible treatment.
