How do I know if I have blood in my stool? I'm noticing maroon mucus in the crevices of my stool that will leach the dark colour in to the water.

In brief: See ur doc

Hi, it's possible that what you are describing is blood in the stools.
The best way is to refute or confirm this is by a stool test that can be done by your doctor in the office. Or he can request you to send a stool sample to the lab. Please see your primary care.
