How common is it to be pooping out blood clots and blood?

This is NEVER normal: Passing blood or clots with bowel movements is an indication to seek medical evaluation, possibly including lab work and endoscopic evaluation (e.g., colonoscopy). If you are on anticoagulation meds (aspirin, warfarin, etc.) you should contact the prescribing physician immediately as he/she may have you stop taking them temporarily.
