In brief: Trivial vs Serious
Usually this is from passing a hard piece of stool or some other trauma.
It hurts, and goes away in short order. If this does not stop in a few days or if the stream is hard, or if the bleeding is or becomes very heavy, a physician visit is in order; if you are losing a large amount of blood (more than a pint total), emergency room visit. Good luck.

Rectal bleeding is not normal and should always be evaluated.
