Yes/see Dr. first.: It's a good idea to get treatment urgently for this. You have blood in your urine, which can mean trauma, malignancy, infection, or something else. Your ketone reading can indicate diabetes, even an acute diabetic episode, and bilirubin can mean liver or gallbladder involvement, or destruction of red blood cells. You need more tests so see your doctor and arrange to go to the er/hospital asap.
