Yes, most likely this appears to be a urinary tract infection (UTI) which can give you various symptoms such as;
Pain during urination
Drowsiness and shock (if this infection spreads to other parts of body---a condition called septicemia)
And in severe cases, one can have Hematuria (blood in urine)
As per standard guidelines, every case of Hematuria should be evaluated at Earliest in detail at ER.
Undiagnosed, untreated this bleeding may get worse any time and can lead to serious complications.
Therefore, at this point, you should not wait and GO TO ER for further evaluation and management plan.
Other causes for similar symptoms also need to be investigated such as stones in the urinary tract, or a tumor (although these are much less common as compared to infections).
Drink lot of water and have someone drive you to ER.
I hope this clarifies and answers your question.
