I had a bowel movement today and noticed something unusual. There was something red in it. It looked like a baby red tomato. What is this?

In brief: Something you ate?

It sounds like you passed something that was not digested, possibly a pill or something swallowed whole.
Watch your stool for any other abnormalities, especially blood or black tarry stool. If there is a family history of colon cancer, you need to let your doctor know.

In brief: Bowel change

This could be undigested food, a blood clot, or an ingested foreign body.
Was there pain with the bowel movement? In any case, a visit with your physician would help sort this out.
