In brief: Rectal

Rectal bleeding after bowel movements usually indicate changes in the rectum and the most common cause is hemorrhoids.
Evaluation by proctoscopy and usually colonoscopy would clarify the issues and rule out the presence of inflammatory bowel disease, cancer and other pathologies. In general it means hemorrhoids which are benign and easily treated. Abdominal pains rather than rectal pain indicates perhaps a more serious source that should be investigated. See your gastroenterologist or surgeon for further care.

In brief: Need eval

Rectal bleeding is usually caused by something benign and is easily treated.
While drinking water and taking stool softners can help with constipation, you might alreads have something like a hemmorroid.
