For anyone under the age of 40 the most common cause of blood in your urine is either a kidney stone or a bladder infection.

Syptoms of a kidney stone include:
-Pain in the side and back, below the ribs
-Fluctuations in pain intensity, with periods of pain lasting 20 to 60 minutes
-Pain waves radiating from the side and back to the lower abdomen and groin
-Bloody, cloudy or foul-smelling urine
-Pain on urination
-Nausea and vomiting
-Persistent urge to urinate
-Fever and chills if an infection is present

Syptoms of a bladder infection include:
General symptoms-
-A strong, persistent urge to urinate
-A burning sensation when urinating
-Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
-Blood in the urine (hematuria) or cloudy, strong-smelling urine
-Bacteria in the urine (bacteriuria)

Infected Kidneys symptoms:
-Upper back and side (flank) pain
-High fever
-Shaking and chills

Infected Bladder symptoms:
-Pelvic pressure
-Lower abdomen discomfort
-Frequent, painful urination
-Low-grade fever

Infected Urethra symptoms:
-Burning with urination

Both conditions require medical treatment. I would recommend telling your parents about what is going on and seeing a doctor as soon as possible. A urinary tract infection is easily treated with antibiotics in most causes. However, if left untreated it could become something far more serious. There is nothing to be afraid of when seeking medical treatment. Doctors just want to help you and see you get better. I hope you feel better soon. Take care and get well soon.

Lots of love <3

If you have blood in the urine you should definitely get checked out by a doctor. I put your symptoms into webmd.com and [HERE] are the results. You might want to edit some details about your pain and dizziness and it could help narrow the results. But I would definitely go see your doctor if possible.

Anytime you see blood in your urine itself, you need to see a doctor. Like has been said, it's common to see kidney stones or infections and both of them need to be addressed by a doctor to see what can be done to make the process easier for you.
