Urine Colors - Source Below
Urine consists of excess water and waste products that have been filtered from the blood by the kidneys. Its natural yellow color is due to excretion of urochrome, a blood pigment. Depending on the amount of fluids you drink, your urine can range in color from almost clear (diluted) to dark orange (concentrated).

Most changes in urine color are temporary and caused by food colors or medications. However, an abnormal urine color may indicate a serious disease. If you're concerned about the color of your urine, especially if you notice blood in it, consult with your doctor.
