In brief: Lots of things

If this is new, we'll do some imaging to see if you have a tumor in your kidney or bladder, or a stone.
If you do, hopefully we can take care of it before it can hurt you. Around 1% of folks have it for their entire lives, often from a minor problem with collagen synthesis ("thin GBM syndrome").

It could be a UTI even with no symptoms.
It could be a kidney stone, vascular malformation,or a tumor. There could be an issue with the bladder or kidney. You should see your doctor and have the urine tested and have the condition checked out.
