In brief: None
Dont rely on symptoms.
Colonoscopy is what to do. Bleeding is a common symptom, but is could be too late. Other could be pain, a mass, cosntipation, weight loss. None of them are specific for colon cancer. Don't wait for symptoms. The screening power of colonoscopy to prevent colon cancer is excellent. Get your colonoscopy.

The first signs of colon cancer would be no symptoms at all.
Later mild intestinal beeping can occur that is also not visible. Later colon blockage and anemia might occur.
