Hi--this could be internal hemorrhoids or an anal fissure but the bleeding could be from higher up as with a colon polyp, or this could be a case of inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis. You need colonoscopy to look for the internal hemorrhoids and to evaluate the other areas of your colon
