Yellow globule like particles in urine

I experienced an episode of gross initial hematuria 8 weeks ago and then again 5 weeks ago. Since then there's been no visable blood in my urine and daily dipstick testing has confirmed this....Except when once or twice a week, upon my second voiding of the day, a tiny yellowish/clear blob appears in the bottom of the cup.
Yes....i've been urinating into a cup ever since the second episode of gross hematuria (whenever possible) ...........I realize this is a bit obsessive, but I'm one of those people who an analizes the heck out of everything.
When the glob appears and I dipstick test the urine, sometimes 1 blue dot will appear, sometimes nothing.
I talked to Bayer, the manufacturer of the dipstick and they said that Myoglobin could cause a similar reaction on the dipstick.
Anyone out there have any idea what these blobs/globs could be??
I've searched until I'm blue in the face and can't find anything that remotely could explain what this stuff is.
I've already been to a urologist and am scheduled to go in next week for a full battery of tests to rule out anything serious, but in the meantime these globs have got me worried sick.
Could a blood clot look like what I've described?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
