Hi.
What are his other symptoms?
What other examinations were performed on him?
Hematuria (blood in urine) could be caused by a many disease conditions, particularly the kidney.  Hematologic problems can also cause hematuria.
Headache is a nonspecific symptom and is caused by a lot of disease conditions.
I agree with a nephrology consult.  I also suggest a consult with a pediatric hematologist for further evaluation.
Good luck.
