Thank you for the input.

Blood in urine is always a matter of concern. The causes may be any stone , infection, growth , nephritis like glomerulonephritis or injury, bleeding disorder. Exercise can also cause blood to appear in urine. When her stomach is hurting, urinary infection is the more probable cause in her age. Give her plenty of water which can reduce the symptoms. She will need to get it investigated & treated. An urine analysis & sonography / scan may be necessary. I would suggest you consult doctor for investigation and treatment.
