Both are possible. Paracetamol if taken in empty stomach can make local irritation, erosion of stomach lining causing discomfort and pain. Food coloring, some medication can cause change of color of urine. Better to avoid artificially colored food or drinks.

Dr. Jay Park answered:

Is urine color a good indicator of how hydrated your body is?

Limited value

Urine_color
Urine color change can be of some value but limited because urine color can also be affected by food coloring, medications, certain metabolic diseases. The frequency of urination or actual amount of voided urine will be of more value in determining the hydration status.

Dr. Bin Sung answered:

Is urine color indicative of hydration?

Yes

Urine
The lighter the color, the more hydrated your body is and vice versa. Drink 6-8 cups of water is our daily recommendation. Of course, not counting if you sweat under the sun or from exercise.

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

can i know based on my urine color how hydrated i am?

Yes and no.

In general, if you are well hydrated, your urine will become more dilute as your body eliminates surplus water. Urine can appear clear and colorless. If you ingest foods or vitamins that color the urine, urine appearance is no longer a good gauge of hydration status. The importance of 'staying hydrated' is likely somewhat overstated, so be careful when consuming large volumes of free water.

Yes for Certain Vits

Certain vitamins can certainly alter urine color. Specifically, many water-soluble vitamins--like the B complexes among others--have potential to alter urine color depending on the dose taken. Please consume only the recommended daily allowance to prevent overdosing on vitamins.
