Bright red blood in the stools is usually nothing to be too concerned about as it means that it is coming from the rectum and not farther up, which would then look like coffee grounds and could be much more serious. Probably hemorrhoids. Make sure you eat enough fiber to maintain regularity. Best to check with your doctor though, just to be sure.
