Did you ever think about the color of your pee? Turns out, you can tell quite a bit about yourself from the color of your urine. According to Cosmopolitan, doctors say the color of your urine indicates your hydration levels, with dark yellow colors suggesting the need for an instant glass of water. Reds and even green shades may be a sign of a more serious health problem.

Here's a chart that tells you what your urine color means...
Pale straw 
This is the ideal urine color and demonstrates a person is sufficiently hydrated. A lighter color than this indicates the individual is probably drinking more water than they need to. Although usually harmless, this may cause them to urinate overly frequently.

Dark yellow 
Amber-colored urine suggests somebody is dehydrated and should drink water as soon as possible.

Although it may be alarming, green urine is usually harmless and occurs as a result of eating particular foods, such as asparagus or artificial colorings. Green urine can also occur as a side effect of certain medications.

Red urine is also usually due to eating certain foods, such as beetroot. It can also be due to blood. If people are unable to link their red urine to a food they have eaten recently, they should visit their doctor as soon as possible.
