Friend, when we see bloody urine in a female cat this can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: A urinary tract infection, bladder stones, cystitis (inflammation of the bladder), etc. to name a few causes.
In this case we are very limited as to what you can do at home. Blanca will need to be seen by a veterinarian for a hands on examination, urinalysis and +/-xrays as initial screening test. In addition she may need oral antibiotics. If cost is a concern look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost. In the meantime make sure she drinks plenty of water; the flushing action of water helps with infections and inflammation of the lower urinary tract.
