Thank you for your question.

Have you had a urine test done as yet or no?

This is Dr. David

have you been sexually active?

light brown flakes in your urine can be from blood in your urine which can be caused by bacterial infection in your urine

or can be due to trauma to your bladder or a small bladder stone or kidney stone

you need to get a urinalysis to check your urine checked for blood and infection.

if you have been sexually active and not taking your birth control pills regularly, you might need a pregnancy test depending on your age, but a few days most likely wouldn't cause you to be pregnant.

you might need to drink more water and fluids as well

if you are drinking caffeine or alcohol, this can also irritate your bladder and sometimes cause bleeding if you are not drinking enough water.

let me know if you have other questions.
