Well, Sorta Cloudy: Normally urine is clear to clear yellow. As dehydration occurs, this can result in a darker yellow or amber color. Some medications can discolor the urine as well. Cloudy urine is to clear urine as orange soda is to orange juice. You see a lot of stuff floating in it but you can't see through it. If you have cloudy urine and burning, see your md.
