This could be hemorroids ( especially if it is just when you wipe yourself) . You may feel a soft swelling at the anus and it may be tender. If there is blood in the stool or more than 2-3 teaspoons at a time the blood may be coming from the bowel and you may need to see a doctor to exclude serious bowel problems like polyps/inflammation/cancer.
