Your would need following investigations in this order (step wise);

1) Cystoscopy; camera exam.

2) Urine cytology.

3) MR urogram.

This is not likely due to your diet.

Stone disease is the commonest cause and many times, concretions may not be detected as they are tiny and passed with the blood.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Yes, this is not an emergency and you are safe to wait till Monday.

You would need further work up.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
