In brief: Many Possibilities

Blood in the urine could be due to infection, trauma to kidneys or bladder, kidney stones, or possibly tumor or renal disease.
I would recommend follow up with your healthcare provider for any blood in your urine.

In brief: Hematuria

Never a good sign.
Usually is benign and signifies a kidney stone or an infection or even urethritis or prostatis....But you need to see a doctor to make sure it isn't something more serious.

In brief: Evaluation needed

There are many causes such as infection, prostate enlargement, bladder trauma from running, bladder or kidney cancer.
Bleeding from cancer is typically intermittent, so resolution of bleeding does not mean there is no important cause. Medical evaluation, which may include urinalysis, urine cytology ("pap smear"), urine culture, imaging studies, and cystoscopy (inspection of the bladder).
