Brief Answer:
there are many possible causes

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

Among the many possible causes are, low platelets in blood, coagulation disorders and any blood vessel abnormality (includes ulcers or cancers of gastrointestinal tract) which is leaking.

We need a basic panel of tests including complete blood count, chemistries and coagulation tests to direct us to further investigations. Endoscopies may be needed depending on above.

Hope this helps.
