23. Y.O. F... If I observed bright red blood in my stool, do I need to go to a doctor immediately, or can I wait to see if it happens again?

In brief: BRIGHT RED BLOOD

Per rectum is typically caused by an inflammed, irritated hemorrhoid.
If you are not having any other symptoms, waiting to see if it reoccurs is reasonable.
