Not likely: Blood from your tooth would be digested and come out black instead of red. If you are having blood in the stool, you should see your doctor.

Dentistry 45 years experience
Yes: If you still have blood in your stool in 12 -24 hours you should contact your md as it is not related to the tooth extraction.
