See a doctor: Gastrointestinal bleeding can have many potential causes, including hemorrhoids, ulcers, gastritis, diverticulosis, and cancer. Taking omeprazole and having hep c are probably unrelated to the rectal bleeding. Rectal bleeding as well as the cause can be serious, so see a doctor right away.

Hard to: explain. HepC with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension will be likely reason for the bleeding. likely bleeding rectal varices. May need management of HepC and if portal hypertension reducing portal pressure with beta blockers
