totally normal, don't panic. for up to 6-8 weeks you can see blood tinged urine and chunks of blood clots. The clots are scabs peeling off as healing takes place. As the scabs peel off, there is often some minor bleeding. The only time to head for the ER is if one of these blood clots blocks your urine flow. And the only thing they do then is flush your bladder.
I overdid at week three and had huge amounts of blood - bright red- in my urine for several days. The doc said I just ruptured a capillary and to take it easy. It went away on day three. It's far more scary for us and not often a big deal to the doc.
Take it easy and drink lots of water.
