Acetaminophen may cause gastric or peptic ulcers. It may lead to upper GI bleeding. other causes like hemorrhoids or fissures or fistula may lead to blood in stools.

Get it done stool examination and colonoscopy. If necessary need upper GI endoscopy.

Avoid spicy food and alcohol, avoid smoking and caffeine drinks. Take soft diet, use tablet pantoprazole.

Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
