Need to repeat: If you had your period when urinalysis was done, it could have contaminated the urine sample and you should repeat the test. If this not the case, the urinalysis should still be repeated. If the blood and protein is persistent and more than trace, you should see a nephrologist who can microscopically analyze blood to see if source is kidney. If so, you should be evaluated for glomerulonephritis.

Kidney disease?: Blood in the urine could be from any part of the urinary system- kidney, ureters, bladder or urethra. But a combination of blood and protein in the urine should make one suspect kidney disease. Have your doctor check your kidney function and quantify how much protein you are losing in the urine.

Concern kidneys...: The presence of both in urine leads to considering some forms of kidney disease. Again, a good history, serial urinalysis, blood test for kidney function, and renal ultrasound will be sufficient to follow such condition safely. But, at times, ct.Ivp and cystoscopy may be required. Of course, the detail of care should be individualized. So, go to talk and work with your attending physician.
