Brief Answer:
Removed polyp sites may act as temporary bleeding point.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query.
See whenever any mass is removed from intestines it leaves a small wound at that place which may act as a site of bleeding.This small wound created due to removal of polyps will take some time to heal up.Till it heals itself mild bleeding can occur from the site.

I would suggest you to take a stool softner for few days this will prevent hard stool rubbing the wound site.
However if not relieved in 5 days or volume of blood increases then go for a repeat colonoscopy.
