In brief: Many possibilities

From infectious colitis to inflammatory bowel disease to certain types of tumors, all can produce this in your stools.
The only way to find out what is doing this is to see a doctor, preferably a gastroenterologist and provide a full history and undergo a detailed physical and laboratory exam and possibly some procedures.
