In brief: Many things

Blood in urine can be from minor to major causes.
Tumors, infections, inflammation , medications, ruptured vesses in the urinary system all can cause blood in the urine. A single drop of blood in a cup of urine can turn the urine red. If you suspect blood in your urine, get seen by your pcp or urologist and find the cause. Don't delay. It is not worth it to wait.

In brief: Blood in urine

If a UTI is ruled out, blood can come from the kidneys, stones in the ureters, bleeding from the bladder or from glomerular diseases of the kidney.
See a urologist for a diagnosis of any bleeding from the kidney or its outflow tract and bladder. If no source is found, see a nephrologist to see if the glomerulonephritis is the cause of the bleeding. Good luck.
