Concentrated, blood,: Bile, coloring from foods or drugs. Most commonly dark from low urine output making it >concentrated, will lighten with >fluid intake & urine -> more dilute. Small amount of altered blood makes urine smoky from infection, stone, kidney disease or cancer. Bile in urine from jaundice from hepatitis or biliary blockage. Some foods - beets, rhubarb, blackberries, some meds eg senna, Nitrofurantoin etc.

May be dehydration: Dehydration is most common cause although some foods (such as beets) can cause this. Try increasing your water intake and if it does not resolve you should see your doctor.
