Default Blood on hamster bedding

I've been on vacation for the past few days and asked my roommate to check in on my hamster while I was gone. When I came back last night, I noticed what looked like blood on a few pieces of my hamster's bedding. I picked her up and looked her over. I couldn't see any wounds/injuries or blood on her fur. I watched her last night and she was acting normal. I googled it and found UTIs are common in female hamsters... I'm not sure if that is it or not. The few pieces of bedding I found with blood on it were close to her hideaway, not her bathroom corner. I'm concerned something is wrong, but as of tonight, I don't see any more blood. It's hard for me to know what happened since I was gone. It's also possible my roommate spilled food or wine in the cage... I was thinking my hamster could have possibly also cut her mouth on some seeds I gave her. I'm really not sure.

Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
