Dear Aravind,
blood in the stool should not be taken lightly. There are many causes for appearance of blood in the stool. If you can see red blood along with the stool, the source of that blood should be somewhere in the distal portion of the gastro-intestinal tract. Among other tests you definitely require to have a colonoscopy done. Consult a Gastroenterologist for diagnosis and management.
