In brief: Constipation

Any time you have bleeding from your rectum, you should get checked.
It sounds like you probably have a small tear or a hemorrhoid that's bleeding, but you should be seen by a doc to know for sure. You are constipated. Eat lots of fiber (vegetables and fruit - 7-12 servings a day), drink water (8 glasses a day) and get regular exercise.
