In brief: Sounds like contract

Ions. If having them and painful u heed to go in.
Sometimes a bladder infection can cause it. An occasional contraction not a big deal but make sure your not peeing all the time and call your doctors office. Likely fine but if persistent it may or may not be a problem. No pain now or bleeding i presume. No trauma to your tummy, right?
