In brief: Best to get checked

Bleeding per rectum may originate in the anal canal, the rectum, or further up the line.
Frequent anal sources of bleeding include hemorrhoids & fissures, that may respond to modifying stool texture (fiber, softeners) and topical agents, or require further intervention. Similar bleeds can be seen with anal & rectal cancer, infections, ischemic colitis, diverticular bleeds, inflammatory bowel, etc.

In brief: Probably not serious

The most common reason to have intermittent rectal bleeding is hemorrhoids.
Warning signs to get prompt evaluation include: large volume bleeding, associated abdominal pain, change in bowel habits, black tarry stools, weight loss, or bleeding persisting longer than 2 weeks. Symptoms of anemia associated with bleeding also require prompt attention, including fatigue, dizziness, or breathlessness.
