In brief: Maybe

Blood in the stool can come from local benign bleeding like hemorrhoids or anal fissures, or from more serious issues such as diverticula and colonic cancer.
You could die from one of these or from serious blood loss if neglected. You should seek attention from your family doctor or a GI specialist and soon.
