In brief: None

Bloody stool is never good and should always be evaluated thoroughly.
See your doctor or a gi/colorectal surgeon for proper evaluation.

In brief: See doctor

There is no normal cause of blood in the stool.
You need evaluation by your doctor, and possibly referral to a gastroenterologist for evaluation.
