A number of causes: The causes for having blood, ketones in the urines can be hormonal disorders, liver diseases, medications and pregnancy. Acute severe illness can cause presence of ketone in the urines.

Few issues: It is abnormal to have blood in thevurine. So this must be accounted for. Now if you are on a period or kidney stones this may account for the blood. But must know the cause. So hydrate well and go back to doctor for another sample to see if the blood is gone. If not you may have to do further testing
