It seems that you are offline, so I am writing you an initial answer. You may ask follow up questions, once you read the answer.

A minimum amount of daily urine produced by kidney is around 500 ml. This is called as obligatory urine volume. If amount of urine produced is less; than once should be investigated for some kidney disease. Since you have not voided for whole day (which means 24 hours), you would need blood work and an ultrasound of kidneys and bladder. Sometimes kidney produce urine but bladder sensations may not be good and one may not feel the fullness of bladder. This can occur by chemotherapy medicines. Thus you need to contact your doctor for the investigations for assessment of kidney or bladder dysfunctions.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
