What could jelly like stool with blood in a child mean?

Hi, I have noticed blood which is bright red in my 4 year old boys faeces. His actual faeces is very pale sort of beige, he has always had quite small dry faeces which the dr says is his system and is normal in him and no cause for concern. The last few days has also seen some jelly like stool along with normal stool and the red blood, I have an appointment tomorrow but am worried just now. thanks
