Tough to say without examination. Any type of infection, bleed or penile trauma can lead to the symptoms.
You can consider sending the urine off for anaylsis and culture to rule out infection.
Regarding a bleed or trauma, you can consider an ultrasound to image these considerations.
You may want to discuss these options with your personal physician or in conjunction with another urological opinion.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
