Infection or stone: Blood in the urine should never be regarded as normal. In a young person, the most common causes are kidney stones or infection. It sounds like you are following this up correctly.

May be nothing: Around 1 person in 100 has a modest amount of blood in the urine over the lifetime. When tumors and stones are ruled out and there's no other medical cause of bleeding, this is best simply noted and ignored. The trace of bacteria are contaminants.
