In brief: Anal bleeding

Fresh red blood when wiping after a bowel movement usually indicates a tear or rip around the anus caused by a large stool.
There is usually very minimal blood loss so there's no need to panic. You are constipated and treatment is drinking more fluids especially prune juice and increasing your fiber intake..
