In brief: Need an evaluation

The causes range from IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, to IBD inflammatory bowel disease, or less likely an infectious colitis.
You need a careful evaluation to determine the cause. Colorectal cancer is far far less likely at your age. However there has been an increase in colorectal cancer in young people over the past decade. Still, it is far more common over the age of 40. See your physician.
