Why is my urine yellow if I drink a lot of water?

Urine color. The urine color usually corresponds to what is dissolved in it. Either you need to drink even more water, or perhaps you're taking vitamins or something else which can color the urine. Unless it is bloody or cloudy, I would not worry about it. Good luck.
