I have had some blood in my stool. I had a tooth pulled and it did bleed a lot. Im thinking it is from that. Its not a lot. Should I be concerned?

In brief: Not likely

Blood from your tooth would be digested and come out black instead of red.
If you are having blood in the stool, you should see your doctor.

In brief: Yes

If you still have blood in your stool in 12 -24 hours you should contact your md as it is not related to the tooth extraction.
