Probably Hemmorhoids: Most likely cause of painless lower GI bleed, in young individuals, is internal Hemmorhoids' But since patients can have painless rectal bleeding from other serious etiology, so it is advised , patient should get Colonoscopy

I agree, serious causes do need to be excluded as heavy rectal bleeding can be dangerous. See a gastroenterologist urgently for colonoscopy
