The most important consideration for you is whether your current bowel habits represent a change from your normal routine. This would potentially make your description of BMs more concerning. It is not altogether unusual to occasionally see undigested food & streaks of blood, & your Hb is reassuringly normal. If remain concerned about your family hx, reasonable to discuss with gastroenterologist
