In brief: See a doctor.
Most likely it's due to hemorrhoids (inflammation of the veins around the anus), but if you're over the age of 50, or have a family history of colon cancer, seeing a doctor is an absolute must.
They will likely do a rectal exam and possibly refer you for a colonoscopy.

In brief: CANCER
Please see your primary care physician.
Blood in the stool has many causes the most severe being cancer or tumor formation. Seeing as you are also constipated there is a chance that your bowel (intestine) is obstructed.
