a little scared

the past two days after bowel movements I've noticed a slight amount of blood on the toilet paper but nothing abnormal about the stool such little blood on-the-job toilet paper it probably would have gone unnoticed if I hadn't of looked for it this isn't the only time this is happened I fact the same thing happened a couple months ago or a couple days but then went away a little nervous

If it's bright red color, then it sounds like hemorrhoid. Try OTC prep-H and sitz bath with Epsom salt first to see if it gets better. If bleeding persist with other GI symptoms, then call your doctor for a GI referral for further work up.
