See nephrologist: Ultrasound only shows anatomical abnormalities. You need to consult a kidney specialist.

Depends: Among the possibilities is an idiopathic hypercalcuria which effects some people causing microscopic hematuria and excess calcium loss. This is something your internal medicine specialist or nephrologist can help sort out with a few tests. There are other more worrisome causes but this could be a simple one.
