|Blood can also show up in the urine, especially during the newborn period. The first thing to realize is that this is not a serious emergency. You don’t have to rush into the ER. You don’t even need to page your doctor for this. Simply observe the poops or the urine and report to your doctor when the office opens what you are seeing.|

|Girls can occasionally get bloody vaginal discharge (pseudo-menses) from withdrawal of mom's hormones. This can look quite bloody, but goes away on its own as the hormones wane.
Hope this helps. Gillian
I have seen what looked like a light blood stain in my newborn's diapers, just a faint orange/red spot where pee was concentrated, and thought it was blood.
It turns out, It was biliruben!
not to be simplistic but, are you absolutely sure it was blood, IE- bright red?
