Republican Stool: You should really wait to see if this continues. It may be what you ate (tomatoes, beets, coloring in foods or drinks), or some momentary irritation from whatever. That's the most likely at your age (assuming 'normal' use of that orifice). But if it continues or increases and/or becomes painful then you should see a doctor. You are in an age group for certain inflammatory problems in the intestine
