In brief: Depends on severity
The signs would depend on the severity of the anemia.
It could be without any significant sign or symptom- when the anemia is very mild- and anemia is only shown up by slight decrease level of hemoglobin. When it is more severe- one may look pale, decrease blood pressure, increase heart rate and symptoms wold be more obvious such as fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest discomfort etc.

In brief: Signs & symptoms...
Include fatigue, exercise intolerance, headache, pallor, etc.
Therapy depends upon the underlying cause, and causes of anemia are many and varied. They can result from impaired rbc production (eg., nutritional deficiencies, marrow infiltration, etc), hematoma, blood loss (gi bleed, hemorrhage, epistaxis, etc.), hemolysis, thalassemia, hemoglobinopathies, etc. More specific info would help.
