General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

Any loose stool with blood in it should be checked with stool test. Its because such symptom can indicate bacterial infection like Salmonella or Shigella. This can be caused by a food you have taken recently. Other possible symptoms which can be present are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever.
I suggest you to visit your doctor and do not wait with it. Stool test and stool culture test should be done. Antibiotics might be necessary.

Hope this will help.
