Blood and protein in urine

Over the last few weeks I have notice a light amount of blood in my urine. Well today it was a dark ice tea color. I went to the urgent care and they confirmed there was a large amount of blood and protein in my urine. The doctor sent me on my way with a RX for Cipro and sent my urine off to the lab. She said I would have my results in 3-4 days. My problem is I am breastfeeding my 3.5 month old daughter so now have to pump and dump. I read somewhere that this is more of a sign of a filtration problem vs an infection. Is that correct? Do I really need to be on Cipro? I also had hydronephrosis with both of my pregnancies and have interstitial cystitis. Thanks.
