Default how much should a kitten go pee?

My 10 week old kitten hardly goes pee. she eats normally, plays normally, and loves to drink her water. She goes poop at least once a day, sometimes twice. When she tries to pee, she sits there for a while and only a dime size amount comes out. (she only seems to go once a day) She does not seem to be in any pain. I just wonder if this is the right amount, considering how much water she drinks. It is something I should point out to a vet?
Thanks.

Does she eat wet or dry food?

Are you sure that's all? What kind of litter do you use? If it's non-clumping litter, it can go down and spread around and soak in, so there's more there than you think.

How much sodium does the food she eats have? Is she possibly absorbing the water instead of processing it? ( Sorry to be technical, I work with older human adults and they have this problem often.) Is she puffy? Feel her legs ever so often and feel if you think they might be swollen.

I use tidy cat non clumping litter. So yes, I guess the pee cold be going straight down. I will scoop around in the box and check for wet litter. She eats Eukanuba dry kitten in the morning and nutro kitten wet at night. I hope to get on on Nutro dry kitten along with the wet as soon as I start running low on the Eukanuba. currently I have a large bag given to me because its what she was on when I bought her two weeks ago.
