The most common cause of your symptoms is a urinary tract infection and so you need to drink plenty of water and see a doctor for antibiotics.

Other causes of passing blood in urine can be kidney stones, trauma to kidney and less likely at your age, bladder cancer.

If you have a fever and lower back pain then the infection may have spread to kidneys and in this case you would need urgent care rather than waiting for your doctor to reopen.
