Urinary tract infection Symtoms include:
dysuria-painful urination
hematuria-blood in urine
Increased frequency or urge to urinate
Flank pain can indicate the infection has gone to the kidneys (pyelo-nephritis)
Foul smelling urine
See your doctor for a urine analysis and a urine culture + sensitivity (UA C+S) if you have any of these symptoms.

When you wipe there may be a tinge of color. But not always. Other symptoms are pain when you pee and having to pee a lot, but only having a tiny bit come out. If you have any of these symptoms, call your doctor. If you can actually see blood in your urine, you need to see a doctor right away, it could be more serious.
More input from WikiAnswers Contributors:
  • If you have a UTI you would know. It feels as if you are pissing bullets. It is so painful that if you think you have one go to the doctor immediately and drink lots of cranberry juice. Note: Cranberry/apple juice from Snapple doesn't taste as bad as some others might.

MORE INPUT: a U.T.I., or Urinary Tract Infection in the elderly can cause symptoms of confusion, lethargy (sleepiness), and even delirium. They may not always have the typical symptoms of a U.T.I. that younger folks have. A fever (low grade) may or may not be present. A patient may not always know if they have a U.T.I. as in some people, they are virtually no symptoms. It is important to see a doctor regularly and have routine blood and urine tests done for this reason! In men, often the only symptom may be a slight burning when they urinate. Drink plenty of fluids if you have a history of chronic U.T.I.'s (coffee or caffeinated beverages do not count as liquids, as they are actually "diuretics" which cause dehydration rather than treat it!)- water is best, and cranberry juice has been proven to promote urinary health. See your doctor is you have ANY of the symptoms listed above!!! A U.T.I is fairly common and easy to treat, but if the infection begins to ascend into your kidneys it could be a very serious matter! Also, UTI symptoms DO mimic many other conditions! (such as kidney stones!)
