In brief: It Depends

If it is literally the color of dark tea or coca cola, there may be blood in the urine.
A dark golden or yellow may only means your child needs more fluids. This means it is possible there is a serious problem. If there is a concern, call your pediatrician.

In brief: Should be checked

Is there a change from previous urine color? Dark urine can mean many things.
Usually, its a sign of possible dehydration. Your pediatrician can do a simple urine test in the office or a urine analysis can be done at your insurance's participating lab.
