Hi there,
Patients taking Clopidrogel have been reported of having cystitis ,glomerulopathy and elevated creatinine levels .One rare side effect of taking this drug is Henoch-Schonlein purpura which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal distension, hematuria, renal colic etc.Aspirin is a blood thinning drug which can  cause haematuria.If the haematuria is significant seek the opinion of  a urologist. I sincerely hope it helps.
Take care and kind regards!

Thank you so much for your comment.  It does make me feel better to know that what I am taking can cause the blood.
