In brief: See a doctor

Common things are common.
You likely have a hemorrhoid. But there are other causes of painful rectal bleeding, such as fissures. The only way to know for sure is to have an exam. Good luck.

In brief: FIssure

You probably have a fissure.
It should be confirmed by a colorectal surgeon and therapy should be initiated before it becomes chronic or gets infected, in which case surgery can not be avoided.
