In brief: Probably hemorrhoids

Blood in the stool in a young person is most commonly due to hemorrhoids.
However, it is not impossible for there to be more serious causes to the blood. If this persists or returns, it is recommended that this be checked by a physician for confirmation of the diagnosis.
