lots of blood in stool

i just had a bowel movement and there was a lot of dark blood. i am 21 and not sure what to do about it. my sister said i looked like there was a few blood clots in it. also i have been having stomach pains for about 3 days ago. this is first time this has happend to me. im not shure if i should go to the doc.

Yes, get to the doctor, blood in the stool is always a red flag that something is wrong.  If the blood is dark, it's probably an upper GI bleed.
