In brief: See GI/CRS

You need to see a GI specialist or colorectal surgeon.
There are a multitude of causes, from benign or malignant tumors to benign anorectal disease, such as hemorrhoids, fissures, or fistulas. Regardless of your age, persistent bloody stools need to be investigated. So, ask your primary care provider to assist you in obtaining a referral. Good luck.
