Thanks for query,
First of all we have to decide that blood in stool is there or not?
You need stool examination to confirm it.
As camera & internal examination does not reveals any abnormality the chances of blood coming from Large intestine arises.There were several condition causes bleeding from large intestine like IBS ,Amoebiasis,Enteritis any pathological lesion etc.
So go for stool examination first.
