In brief: Blood in stool

there are dozens of potential causes of blood in the stool.
Sorting it out is the job of a gastroenterologist. Clues to the source or the actual color of the blood, whether there are any associated symptoms, medications being taken, and other coexisting medical problems. You should see your doctor for a referral if you are seeing blood. Good luck.
