Rectal bleeding is never normal and should always be medically investigated until a definite cause is found. Google rectal bleeding and click on to one of the many sites - the Medicinenet site is particularly informative and you will then be better prepared for your consultation . If necessary ask to see a G.I. specialist unless a GP can firmly diagnose the source as minor (e.e. anal fissure, haemorrhoids etc).
