thanks for posting your query.
Let me know the associated symptoms along with bleeding per rectum.
Do you have pain abdomen/ unable to pass flatus or stools/ decreasedurine output?
You should consult with general surgeon urgently and should go for thorough check up.
There appears to be major injury in gastrointestinal tract.
You should go for ultrasound imaging on preliminary basis and if needed, then you should also go for CT abdomen with angiography for better clarification of site of bleeding.
Meanwhile, you should take hemostatic for control of bleed.
take care,
