In brief: Hemorrhoids...

Your symptoms are consistent with hemorrhoids (piles).
Try a cortisone based anorectal cream, soaking your bum in a sitz baths with epsom salts and avoiding constipation. If symptoms persist go see a doctor. Good luck!

In brief: Could also be...

Could also be pruritis ani, an irritated skin process that can also bleed.
Avoid wiping too much, avoid itching or scratching the area. Keep the area very dry after washing. Do not used colored or scented toilet paper. Can get worse with eating acid foods like tomato, lemon, oranges, etc. Would need to see a doctor for exam & prescription ointment if it does not get better.
