Hello and welcome to HCM,
Presence of blood in stools can be due to many reasons.
Anal fissure, infection, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, mesenteric artery infarction, polyp, growth or cancer are some of the reasons for blood in stools.
A stool examination is required. In case any infection, it will be detected by microscopic examination.
If there is there is no evidence of infection, a colonoscopy is required.
you need to consult a gastroenterologist for colonoscopy.
Any growth, polyp or any suspicious lesion can be visualized and biopsied.
The biopsy examination will determine the nature of the lesion and hence the management.
Pink colored lip can be due to trauma, ulcer, or congestion.
Consult a physician for clinical examination of the lesion.

Thanks and take care
