Constipation. Maybe a chronic problem. Have to take stool softeners drink lots of fluids, may need senekot (although not recommend to use for long time) but, for the rectal bleeding that may be due to straining you should have a doctor take a look and may even need a colonoscopy.
Blood in stool. Suspicious but your age is in your favor unless a strong family history of colon or breast cancer. Likely another cause. I would see your PCP.
