It can be benign: Some people are prone to have a few RBCs in their urine. As long as your Bladder and Kidney are checked out to be healthy and free from any tumor or growth, then you can ignore it.

Microalbumin High: Blood in the urine most commonly arises in the setting of bleeding within the urinary system.

Since your microalb/creat ratio is elevated, that could be a sign that the kidneys are leaking protein (not filtering well). You should see a nephrologist for evaluation. ...Read more
