I peed this morn and it was dark yellow like caramel. Only once. But I drink dr pepper constantly with almost no water. Is this ok?

In brief: Probably cocentrated

First morning urine is usually the most concentrated which makes the urine dark.
Colring in your dr peppers may also contribute to the caramel color. However worth having urine checked if caramel color continues because it might be due to blood from kidney or myoglobin. Either would require treatment. Try and switch your prime beverage to water, it is the low calorie health drink for all.
