Bleeding: No amount of bleeding is normal and should be checked out properly. Excess fiber can give you dirrhea or constipation, depending on your fluid intake. Both can cause hemorrhoids to bleed, but that diagnosis should be left to the doctor to confirm or rule out other explanations for your bleeding. Do not self diagnose rectal bleeding!

Probably infection: I'm not clear what your results are based on your question. (cyst eh++ is not typical notation for stool results). If she has white blood cells, and unusual stools, she has either an infection or some type of inflammation, or both. She should follow up with her doctor on the results.

If constipation is just due to slow movement of the food and poop through the gut, then the things to try are vegetables, water, prune juice, prunes, fiber+water, Miralax, (polyethylene glycol) Senokot or other senna, milk of magnesia, other laxatives... A doctor can evaluate and prescribe helpful medication too. Exercise also helps.

Bile: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue.
