Default Pink wee, dwarf hamster

This morning I discovered pink wee on Luna's wheel and bits of pink dotted about the cage on the white substrate. I woke Luna to check on her and she seems fine within herself. She immediately got excited and ran about, ran in her wheel, ate and had a cuddle.
She did another wee on her wheel while she was up and I immediately put kitchen roll on it and it is still pink.

The only thing she ate different last night was a small bit of cooked broccoli (she normally has it raw) and a tiny piece of cheese (she has never had it before, it was a one off), a piece of cooked wholemeal pasta plus her normal dwarf hamster food.

I've never noticed pink wee before, this is the first time. I don't know whether to observe for a few more days or whether she needs to see a vet?

Nothing that she's eaten is going to turn her pee pink so if there's nothing red in the cage with colour that could run she could maybe have chewed on it could be a trace of blood, maybe a UTI or other urinary tract problem possibly, if it doesn't go back to normal pretty soon I would get her checked out, if it is a UTI they usually respond to meds well.

Thanks cypher. Actually there are some red wooden berries on a hamster chew toy that she got for Christmas but as far as I'm aware she hasn't touched it, though I will inspect it closely later.
I will keep monitoring her and if it doesn't improve soon will make an appointment with vet.
