In brief: The bleeding will

Eventually stop. This is old blood from the dissolving clot.
The pain should have eased after it started to bleed. The bleeding may last for 10-14 days. Best thing is to wear a light day sanitary pad. If still problematic on return to home see your doctor or a colorectal surgeon to remove the remaining clot and stop the bleeding sooner. The worst is over. Relax. This is unlikely to be fresh blood.
