I found this - Hope it helps - Yes you should get it looked at. It could be something dangerous or if you had a larger BM it could just be as simple as a tear.
Lower GI tract (usually maroon or bright red, bloody stools):
Intestinal infection (such as bacterial enterocolitis)
Inflammatory bowel disease
Colon polyps or colon cancer
Trauma or foreign body
Bowel ischemia (a lack of proper blood flow to the intestines)
I get blood because I have a hemarhoid. Check with your dr. just in case but I guess I'm just used to it. Mine actually stuck out once (sorry if tmi) but it was so annoying and gross. It was painful and itchy but I always have irregular bm. Sometimes it's diarrhea and sometimes I'm constipated for like a couple of days. It sucks but if you have any of these symptoms than most likely it's a annoying and common hemmarhoid.
