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.

As a nurse.....I say henorrhoids.  Just cause you cant see or feel outside the rectum doesnt mean there isnt some hiding internally

If you google rectal bleeding you will find many sites that will give you further information for your discussion with your doctor.  The Medicinenet site is particularly informative.

But do seek medical advice because rectal bleeding is never normal.
