Only light blood and pain, could this be a UTI?


Q: Yesterday, I was urinating regulary during the day; however, in the evening I began to feel pain and there was blood more on the tissue than in my urine. I had to go frequently and there was abdominal pain. There was no discharge or smell. I immediately began to drink water, cranberry juice, and place a warm compress on my abdomin. Today things are a little better. It's been 19 hours. I have mild pain but only after urination and there are 2 or 3 drops of blood. I don't have to go frequently, no abdominal pain, no fever, no discharge or smell. Should I keep doing what I'm doing or should I consult with my doctor?
