Blood : Blood in the urine means stones, or infection, or tumor or combinations thereof. Fever makes infection more likely, pain makes a stone more likely, & no pain & no fever makes tumor more likely. See your doctor & provide him a urine sample as nitrates in the urine make infection more likely and can be treated with antibiotics to relieve your symptoms quickly.

UTI/Yes: It sounds like you have bacterial cystitis and possibly pyelonephritis. You may be experiencing some post voiding urinary retention. You need a urinalysis, urine culture and bladder/renal ultrasound. You will need to be treated with a 10-14 day course of antibiotics. Get seen by your md. Hope you fell better soon.
