Not really: It indicates that you have hematuria. There are many things that can cause hematuria- from infection, inflammation, stones, problem with kidney itself-likenephritis, nephrotic syndrome, etc. You need to have more eval like a ct scan , and need to see a urologist or nephrologist depending on what is the cause/problem.
