What causes bleeding in the stools?

Hi. I have had bright red blood in my stool for many years now. Sometimes there is a great deal of pain, while other times I don t feel any pain. Over the past year or so, the amount of blood has increase a lot. The toilet water will be completely red by the time I am finished going to the bathroom. Also, I had a blood clot (about the size of a grape) on the toilet paper recently. I am a 29 year old female. What could these symptoms indicate?
