In brief: Hello.

Hello. Can't diagnose the cause of your anal itching and redness.
There are many possible causes for this to include pinworms, hemorrhoids, infections, yeast, anal fissures and skin tags (just to mention a few). However, if you have been sexually active without barrier protection, then yes, it would be prudent to be evaluated.
