In brief: Yes

Hematuria means blood in the urine, it could be microscopic not visible by naked eyes or macroscopic visible, nephrologist and urologist could investigate the causes.

Your first step may be to call your primary care physician so that he/she can decide on the appropriate next step, which may be a specialist.

In brief: No

Hematuria (blood in the urine) comes from an abnormality somewhere between the interface of the blood in the kidneys (the glomerulus) down to the bladder.
It can originate from the kidney, ureter or bladder and workup looks at all the anatomic structures.

In brief: Usually no

Causes of hematuria, blood in urine, include bleed in the urinary tract from a tumor, stone, or other reasons of injury or inflammation.
However, causes from diseases of the kidney filtering units, glomerular disease, are not to be ignored. Blood disease e.g. Unusual thinnes of blood, called coagulopathy, may precipitate hematuria.
