It is not: uncommon to have some bleeding associated with urinary tract infection due to bladder wall irritation from the bacteria. If the symptoms persist for 48 hours after initiating treatment you should check with your health care professional to be certain the the antibiotic is the right one for the organism growing in your bladder. There are also rarer possibilities but common things are common.
