Suggest...: If your bm looks like toothpaste then it must be thin and white? If you had oral contrast for an x-ray recently that might explain the white color. Blood in the stool is clearly not normal either. I would suggest you see your doctor with these symptoms to find an explanation. Good luck!

Depends.: The consistency sounds okay. The blood does not. It may be a simple issue, such as hemorrhoids, if the blood is a bright red, or a more serious issue if the color is a darker red. If you have this continue, or if the color is a darker red, see a physician immediately.

Make sure check w/Dr: There are several reasons for the trace of blood in the stool. Each and every one of them need professional screening and dr.'s consultation. Do not attempt to self medicate or postpone the med. Assistance.
