Need more tests: I would recommend a cath urinalysis because you are a woman and sometimes urinalysis can become contaminated with vaginal cells. Then that urine needs to be sent for a urine culture and if positive treat for UTI. If neg and you still have blood then need to see urologist for further evaluation
