This needs immediate exam.

If you can not go to the doctor's office go to urgent care or the ER.

Infection is the most likely cause.

If you are older, a lesion in the bladder could be the cause.

Kidney disease can sometimes do this.

Don't wait on this any longer.

You need a urinalysis, and most likely you need an antibiotic.
