\r works in Windows and Mac (which is Unix based). This is just a return -- you would then need to overwrite what was on that line. See how this looks...

I think you're making this overly complicated. Why would you use separate threads to update each "part" of the String? The numeric representation (23%) and the bar display (*****) are both based on the same value, so all you need is to build a String based on this value.
