In brief: Urgency
Urinary urgency has many potential causes.
The first step is to rule out cystitis (female) or prostatitis (male). See a physician and have a urinalysis and urine culture. Also, avoid known bladder irritants like caffeine and alcohol.

In brief: See your doctor
If this is a frequent occurrence, there can be a number of causes.
If there is blood in the urine and you have pain when urinating, this could be a kidney stone. For men, an enlarged prostate can be the culprit. Usually an infection causes increased urination but difficulty urinating can still be a symptom. In all cases, you should see a doctor for a thorough evaluation.
