"Blocked Pipes": Blood contains proteins which cause the blood to congeal when outside of blood vessels. This can be life-saving following trauma but can be life-threatening if the clotting mechanism is activated inside a blood vessel, leading to the obstruction of flow to the brain (stroke), heart muscles (mi), or lungs (pulmonary emboli), to name a few. Rx hinges on opening the blockage asap+/-blood thinners.

Depends: How bad depends on where the clot is. In a superficial vein, it is just an annoyance. In the major artery of the brain, it would be very bad. Unresponsive means not responding to treatment.

Inadequate sample: What you described suggests that the specimen was not sufficient for an adequate evaluation. Talk to the doctor or clinic that collected the specimen. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
