Pain and blood in stool?

Have been having really hard, painful poops. In the last week this has been happening, I never took it to mind. But today the blood had clots in them with no stool because it was so hard. No pain in colon but right at the end, what could it be? All suggestions please.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  It sounds like you have constipation causing something like hemmorhoids.  I would recommend seeing your doctor to get checked out for this.  In the mean time you can try increasing your fiber intake to help the constipation.
