See dr if persists: Given you young age and without other symptoms like abdominal pain or mucus, I would not be concerned if those red pieces do not recur. If they do, see your clinician who can perform a guaiac test to confirm if it is blood or not. If blood, they can perform additional tests or referral to determine cause.
