In brief: See your doctor
There are a variety of causes including fissures and hemorrhoids, but you need to make sure you don't have a cancerous growth.
Visit your doctor and make sure you get a complete physical exam, including a rectal exam. If you are age 50 or better and you never have had a colonoscopy, you should talk with your doctor about arranging this too.
