Is it normal to pass some yellow liquid and a few drops of blood with your first bowel movement after a colonoscopy wich was 4 days after?

What do you have?: Bleeding as you describe may be due to a local process like an anal fissure, can reflect colitis, or may be a harbinger of a post-polypectomy bleed. Consider your age, risk factors, underlying medical conditions, drugs you've taken (particularly blood thinners, anticoagulants, nsaid's, aspirin). But, post-procedure bleeding warrants urgent medical attention--call your doctor now +/- proceed to ER.

Yes: It's probably normal, but I would mention it to your colonoscopist.
