No: Blood in the urine can be caused by several conditions such as kidney stones, urinary tract infections, or menstruation. Pregnancy does not usually cause blood to be present in the urine.

RBC origin eval: You need an evaluation to determine where the blood is coming from. It may be from the filtering units, kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, or urethra. The presence of other factors in the urine, symptoms, and patient's age all will suggest a likely source, and order of investigations to your doctor.

To put it another way -- no, the presence of red blood cells in the urine does not mean that your pregnant. Bladder infections and kidney stones are two common ways to get red blood cells into urine. Less frequently other issues such as inflammatory kidney diseases could be responsible.
