Hi Lauren,

Depending on the age of the person and the family history and other relevan history, this can be some serious condition also or can be just few incidences of blood in the stool.

Since you are mentioning that this is for the past 6-7 weeks and only 2-3 times you have notices it, I would suggest you to have consultaion with some doctor to make sure that this is not because of some of the serious causes of the gastrointestinal system.

Thanks and take care.
