Is this a concern?

I am a 42 year old male. About 12 years ago I had a vasectomy and then just prior to remarrying I had a reversal. This was about 4 years ago. After the operation I had bloody ejaculate which subsided after a number of weeks. My urologist told me this was a good sign things were hooked up properly. Periodically it would reoccur for the first 6 months afterwards until it stopped all together.
This morning I noticed that I once again had blood in my ejaculate. Not heavy, just pinkish. I do not sm to have any other symptoms however 1 time about 3 months ago I did have a painful ejaculation. This only occured that one time.
Other than that I have no frequent need to urinate or have bowel movements more periodically. I have increased the fibre in my diet so I am very regular.
Also I have been taking Reductil for the last 8 weeks and I have noticed some side effects from this which are minor. Light headedness for just a moment, slight headache, dry mouth and pins and needles. I have now decided to stop this medication.
Is this something to just monitor and see if it should reoccur or should I seek medical advice. I have no history of prostate problems in my family and my overall health is fine. I exercise regularily. Though the meds have increased my blood pressure slightly I am still within acceptable levels.
I should also note that I am a kidney donor from 14 years ago but have never had any issue with this except slightly elevated potasium levels (but still within the normal range.
