SINCE I AM NOT A DOCTOR I AM NOT ABLE TO SAY FOR SURE. THIS COULD BE SOMETHING FAIRLY SIMPLE, IT COULD BE YOU HAVE A HEMORRHOID (AN INFLAMED VEIN) .HEMORRHOIDS ARE COMMON. SOME CAUSE NO PROBLEMS (BLEEDING/PAIN) WHILE OTHERS DO. THEY CAN BE TREATED BY A DOCTOR. ANOTHER POSSIBILITY COULD BE A PROBLEM WITHIN YOUR DIGESTIVE TRACT. WHATEVER IT IS, THE BLEEDING IS A SIGNAL THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED BY A DOCTOR TO RULE OUT ANYTHING  MORE SERIOUS, PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A PHYSICIAN PROMPTLY SO THE CAUSE CAN BE FOUND AND TREATED,. SEST OF LUCK
