Hard and infrequent bowels, bloated, blood in stools. Is it a serious case of constipation ?

I am 18 years old, female, 152cm height and weighs around 54kg. Before, my regular bowel movement is once a day, at least. Starting last week, i just poo maybe once in two days. and its a little bit hard for me to evacuate because i think my stool are hardened, and i feel like im not emptying completely. then last thursday i discovered that there was blood together with my stool. this happened for three times already, as far as i know. yesterday, i feel bloated the whole day and there is excessive intestinal gas. earlier today, when i took a poo, i consider my faeces to be in small amount considering that i ate a lot last night. and then there's blood again. when i tried contracting my anus after the bloody stool came out, there was around 3 drops of blood. i never had any GIT pain/stomach aches, except for the intestinal gas yesterday Am i just having a serious case of constipation, doctor?

Welcome to HCM

It is most likely that you are having constipation and due to forceful excretion and putting pressure on you anal sphincters have caused hemorrhoids that is causing bleeding in the stools. It is recommended to use laxative like lactolose and visit a doctor to have a proctoscopy and evaluation of the condition.
