welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since it is painless bleeding & fresh blood it could be piles .Bleeding from piles if continued for longer time it could produce anaemia so please consult a surgeon & get his problem solved .Nowadays piles is operated with minimal invasive methods so the recovery & hospitalisation period is also very short .There are other causes of bleeding also but this is the commonest one but consulting & examination will be better.
