Yes: Assuming the pattern hasn't changed it is probably not serious, however since you are used to the bleeding, you would not be alerted to another more serious cause of bleeding. So, yes, you should be checked and have more serious sources of bleeding eliminated or diagnosed, usually by colonoscopy at the least.
