Does blood in the feces is a serious problem? My friend had a rectal bleeding for the few 4 days in a soft feces without any pain.

Could be serious. Blood in the stool should never be ignored. While it is most likely from hemorrhoids if she is the same age as you, there are other causes that are more serious, such as colitis, stomach irritation, infection, and even cancer or lymphoma. I recommend she have it looked by a doctor, since it has been persistent for 4 days.
