This could be hemorrhoids (piles). Bright red blood from the anal area is a common symptom, though if the cause is piles then usually the bleeding is accompanied by straining to pass stools.
Please read the article on this topic (See: Medical - Head to Toe - Abdomen). Piles are common and are usually not serious, and can often be treated at home or with advice from your pharmacist. If your symptoms persist, however, you must consult a doctor: the condition could be more serious or it could be from another cause.
