Brief Answer:
?Tear in the foodpipe

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

It looks like the bleeding is due to a small tear in the food pipe that could have occured due to vomiting.
If it is recurrent, if the Hemoglobin drops or if the stool is tarry, get medical opinion.
If these are not present continue taking Rantac and also take Sucralfate 10 ml four times a day for a week.
