Thanks for posting your query.
Please do not panic .You are not having any life threatening illness.
Trust me you have a wonderful life ahead.
According to your description you are most probably having a bleeding pile in your anus ( external hemorrhoid in medical terms) .
Bleeding hemorrhoids can either be XXXXXXX or external hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are a painful condition in which veins in the rectal and anal area get swollen ,engorged with blood and bleed intermittently .While some types of hemorrhoids can clear up by themselves after minimal treatment, other types such as bleeding hemorrhoids need minor surgical procedure like hemorrhoidectomy.
The release of fresh blood externally or internally is the main sign of bleeding hemorrhoids. Bleeding XXXXXXX hemorrhoids can result in fresh blood in the stools, in the toilet bowl and on toilet paper. Many patients are quite startled to see the flow of blood from that part of the body.
Some of the common causes of bleeding hemorrhoids include:

Very weak rectal vein walls and valves
Serious constipation
Too much pressure on rectal veins due to poor muscle tone or posture, such as prolonged sitting
Hypertension in the portal vein of liver.
Excessive consumption of caffeine and alcohol

Millions of people are suffering with this condition silently, which affects their lifestyle and work . So relax , However, one thing that is known for sure is that hemorrhoids are caused and or exacerbated by your daily lifestyle and diet. It is crucial for you to seek help early so that your condition does not get worse in terms of bleeding or pain.

So I would advise you to consult a general surgeon who can first examine you and confirm the diagnosis , rule out any significant cause and start appropriate treatment .
Please remember that it is a recurrent condition and along with treatment you need to make appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes to prevent it like avoiding constipation or prolonged pressure on butt( sitting, traveling etc)

Hope I have answered your query.
