In brief: It Depends

If your urine is a bit darker in the morning or when you are dehydrated, that can be normal because the urine is just a bit more concentrated.
This will normalize if you drink fluids, and if it does you're generally fine. However, blood in the urine, or urine the color of dark tea/ cola drinks is not, and you should contact your doctor if that occurs, or with any questions.

In brief: Sometimes

Dark urine can represent a number of issues including dehydration, infection or ingestion of a chemical that causes color change when excreted.
If the urine remains dark, has a strong odor, or urination becomes increasingly freqent or painful, you should have your doctor evaluate your symptoms and a urinalysis.
