Having blood and/or clot in the urine is a symptom. Generally this does indicate bleeding is occurring in the Urinary tract: Kidneys, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder or from the urethra. Blood clots that may or may not be accompanied by pain include kidney stones, kidney cysts, sickle cell disease, hydronephrosis, and cancer, trauma, scar formation, blockage of a vein, tumor.

Without a urinalysis to check for infection is hard to say what may be going on. Passing blood clots through the urine is something that needs to be checked out in person with your doctor. There are so many possibilities as to why blood could be in the urine.

So please do call your doctor in the morning and be seen for further evaluation. Since you don't mention pain though, if there is and if it's severe, then even a trip to the ER tonight is best.
