Yes: Sure could be completely normal. If it continues and is increasing amounts, then I would have your hemoglobin checked.

Yes and no: in General bright red blood dripping or found while wiping for somebody in your age is related to a hemorrhoid or anal fissures saying that I will feel more comfortable if you see a doctor for proper evaluation mean while try to keep your stool soft hydrate yourself well eat more fibers eat more fruit and more vegetables and you can use OTC ointment good luck
