This is worrying as it could be an infection (bacterial or parasite) of the colon or even a sign of a polyp or growth like cancer. Please see your doctor - take a stool sample with: about 1 teaspoon full in a clean bottle inside a plastic bag. I think they need to send a sample to the lab as you may need antibiotics or anti-parasite medication. Your doctor may need to send your for further examination under anaesthetic if the lab test shows up nothing.
