Yes: Small amt of blood will not cause problems with colonoscopy. Continue the bowel prep and have the colonoscopy to diagnose the problem.

Call your GI MD: The fact that you have more llq pain is of concern; were you to have acute diverticulitis, it would merit immediate treatment; call your GI dr. For advice.
