Yesterday, after I went to the toilet, there was red blood in my urea. No pain, and since then, I have had no bleeding ( I had no bowel mvt yet). Should I get worried?

when there is blood in the urine it is called hematuria, there is many causes starting from infection to stones in the urinary tract to more serious issue. you should see a urologist to make you some exams so he can give you the right treatment even if you don't see blood anymore
Dr. Fadi Dalati Urology
There are many reasons that could lead to hematuria (red blood cells in urine). We should, first of all, differentiate hematuria from other causes leading to dark-colored urine.

1)Dehydration and poor water intake forces the kidneys to concentrate urine in order to preserve water, resulting in dark urine. during summer season, we tend to loose big amount of body water and thus 2L of water might not be enough to keep the nody well hydrated

2) Certain foods could result in red-colored urine, such as beets

3) Tea-colored urine may indicate bilirubin in urine which may be caused by gallbladder stones diseases

4) Certain medications could change the color of urine, or even result in hematuria, such as rifampin and anti-coagulants

5) Urinary stone disease can lead to hematuria

6) Urinary tract infections may present with hematuria

7) Bladder tumors could present with hematuria, though it is very very rare in your age group

8) Hematuria could be due to kidney parynchemal diseases, in which RBC morphology (shape) would be altered

First thing to do would be to do a urine analysis test with RBC morphology, as well as creatinine in blood, and then visit your urologist for further testing and treatment if needed
