thanks for choosing health care magic.fresh blood in stool usually comes from local source means from last part of intestine.It could be simple cut in the part or may be piles.But pain in abdomen could due to some infection in intestine or gas.take light diet and more of fluids.You can take some anti spasmodic for pain.Get your blood pressure checked.there are many possibilities for your pain ,so if it bothering please see your doctor.
