Hematuria: Hematuria is always serious if there is no obvious explanation. Expect a workup for kidney and bladder cancer for starters. It would be great to detect these while still curable. There's more but this is the most important reason to be concerned.

Hard to say: First you need microscopy to truly assess for the number of red blood cells in your urine. If that demonstrates red blood cells then you need further urologic evaluation. this often entails a urine cytology and hematuria protocol CT and even possible cystoscopy: tests to make sure nothing concerning is going on. Before you worry first make sure that you really have red blood cells in your urine.

Very serious: Hematuria is never normal. The cause of your urinary tract bleeding must be identified.
