In brief: Lots of things

But the most common cause for blood in the urine is called familia hematuria.
In this condition blood always shows up in the urine life long after extensive work up but is totally harmless. Bloodwork is always normal. Hopefully this is the case but it sounds like you are in good hands and if it is something else they will figure it out and explain it to you.

Full nephrology workup may provide the answer. Otherwise, a pediatric rheumatologist.
