Bloody discharge from the vulva can be normal during heat, or it may be a sign of dysfunction or disease.  Causes include urinary tract problems like infection, bladder stones, kidney disease, tumours, trauma, clotting disorders and congenital abnormalities. 
Signs of urinary tract disease are frequent urination, straining to urinate, pain while urinating, and foul smelling urine. 
Female dogs can have their first heat as early as 6 months.  Other signs of heat are calling, swelling and redness of the vulva, attractiveness to male dogs, and raising the hindquarters.  Bloody discharge associated with standing heat in the female dog is the only situation where blood in the urine is normal, if this is not the case you will need to enlist the help of your local vet to uncover the underlying problem.
