In brief: Depends

This can be very serious - colon cancer can present with bleeding.
It may also be simple such as hemorrhoids due to straining with bowel movements. You really need to see a physician.

In brief: See doctor

Rectal bleeding is not normal and should always be evaluated.
See a colorectal surgeon, who will do a complete evaluation and examination, and can treat most causes of rectal bleeding.
