In brief: UTI or stone

Sounds like a urinary tract infection.
May have some blood present causing the red/orange discoloration. A small stone in the bladder could cause - but those usu. Cause very severe pain, that passes after a day or so.They sell otc UTI test kits at the pharmacy that are pretty reliable, and if it shows nitrites - then it's pretty definite for a UTI which needs anti-biotics.Can try cranberry pills.
