Symptoms
Blood is present in urine - not visible to eye, on the scale it reads 14 (not sure what is meant by this?)

Ultrasound has revealed no kidney stones, prostate is okay, bladder looks normal

blood test come back all positive - nothing untoward found.

No excessive exercise performed, no swollen joints, legs, etc, no pains, no aches, stools are okay, appetite normal, no headaches, no rashes, no pains passing urine

Dr said would like to monitor for next couple of months, taking urine sample every calendar month for analysis.
if not change, send for a Cystoscopy..

any ideas? thanks in advance

Based on your history and description of the hematuria, It would be wise to repeat the urinalysis to look for progression or resolution. A history of trauma should also be ruled out particularly to the back as it can also lead to such a presentation. Cystoscopy can be advised if the blood in urine does not subside and continues to show up in the test.
