Brief Answer:
Bleed from stomach is dark and black/tarry...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Blood from stomach is affected by acidic secretions and becomes dark and tarry as it passes through stool. Since you saw bright red blood with stools, it is not from stomach.

I would not be overly worried if you are fine now. If not, then you should see a doctor for clinical examination.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
