Congrats on your new baby and your sucessful VBAC!
Everything is all stretched out down there right now, plus you have that tear near the urethra. I don't think that this is anything worrisome at this point- chances are it will heal all on its own well before the 6 week checkup.
I don't know if I experienced this, because honestly I never tried to stop peeing in the middle after having a baby. As long as I could hold it in until I got to the toilet I wasn't worried! Nor was leakage really a major concern when I had heavy lochia since I was wearing a pad anyway.
