Hello jenjent;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Bleeding at time of stools can be commonly due to piles which can happen as a result of excessive straining for stools;constipation.It is not a reason to worry but if you have constipation then you need to do a few dietary changes like increase the intake of fibers in your diet by eating more fruits and vegeies;and avoid junk food and excessive fatty and fried food.Also for piles you should get examined by a surgeon and get treated if the bleeding is daily.
Take care.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Geeta Sundar's  Response
hi, welcome to HCM. Blood in stools can be due to various causes like piles, infection, a local tear in the rectum, increase in blood pressure, or even colonic cancer. Do get a local exam of the rectum and a stool exam done first and if local causes are excluded, then you can undergo a colonoscopy to rule out cancer of colon. Mostly the case may be one of piles, so do not worry unduly, but get yourself checked. The throat irritation may be a mild flu and needs just gargling and steam inhalation unless it becomes severe. Regards.
