Yes, definitely a vet! Did he get rammed by another? Are your animals horned? The elevated temp could mean an infection. Did you take it after he was running around?

Needs a vet, that is not normal to have a fever with bleeding.
Only problem is that there is no vets around me that knows much about goats. Every time I've gone I've left saying to myself "I could have done that". I have given banimine for fever and la2oo for infection ( if any). Any advice on anything else?

Make sure he is drinking plenty to help flush kidneys and pooping. If he was hit hard enough to cause blood, could also twist a gut, so poop is important.
Other reason for blood is infection of course and some plants can cause red urine. Too much water especiallyfed by bottle can cause red urine. The fact he's acting well is at least encouraging.

not doig as well this morning,temp normal but standing around by himself and sometimes looks humped up. tried to wait to see him pee before I left for work but I am really concerned about him. I have no ammonia chloride but I googled that lemon juice drenched would also work?

Im sorry hes not doing well... I know its frustrating when the vets don't do much more than you can but this is serious and without having hands on him, we can only advise based on what we are told. Hands on is his best bet this time.
For ex: If you think its UC then we should not give water as he can't pee it out and bladder can burst. If you are thinking injury then water is good to flush the kidneys..a vet is best at this point.

Fresh fruit from canning section will help if its UC. Dosed same as Ammonia chloride.

Best wishes!!
