Is this a cause for concern?

Normal! it can even be red depending on what they've eaten, more hay will help clear it up a bit.

Its very common this time of year. if you google red urine (its called red whether orange, brown or red for some reason)

For obscure reasons (my rabbits all eat the same food, drink the same water and get the same treats) some get red urine, some don't. Red urine (due to excessive urinary pigments) may occur due to any of the following:

While on antibiotics
At the first cold snap in the fall
After eating fir leaves
After eating carrots, spinach or other veggies containing beta carotene
