Depends: On if you have blood or not in your stool. If the color of stool is red but no blood that is normal and is due diet or medications or drinks. If blood is in the stool an evaluation is warranted. At least a rectal examination looking for fissures, external hemorrhoid or new rectal lesions or ulcers
