In brief: Not necessarily

It's a sign of bleeding somewhere in the intestine, usually upper intestine/stomach if its dark red blood.
See your doctor.

In brief: Bad sign

Could be anywhere in the GI tract but usually this is lower gi-.
Much upper GI stomach turns black as it passes. Most rectal or anal is bright red. Diverticulitis, and avms, polyps, and cancers can bleed.
