Hi there,

Red urine suggests blood unless you are taking any medication or beverage daily with red dye in it.

I will assume it as blood unless proven otherwise.

Blood thinning medications like aspirin can cause this commonly.

Kidney stone also can cause.

Injury to the urethra and bladder neck can cause this.

Also bladder malignancy can present like this.

Hence, further evaluation is required soon.

It is better to go to the ER.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
