See GI doctor. Make appointment with a GI doctor. He will examine you to make sure you don't have anal disease (e.g. Hemorrhoids, anal fissure) that may cause bleeding and also determine when you need your first colonoscopy (depending on what he finds on physical exam and the age at which your grandfather developed colon cancer).
