I was constipated but was able to pass a bowel movement. Noticed some dark red blood. Not much. Looked stringy. Told I have ibs. This normal?

In brief: No

Blood in stool is never normal.
Need to see a GI specialist as it could colitis, a polyp or simple as a hemorrhoid.Need a workup to see if it is serious or not.
