Blood in Stool

This morning while using the toilet I noticed blood in my stool, turning the toilet water red. What can be causing this? Should I go see a doctor?

Dear Christo
If the blood was not only when you wiped, but mixed with the stool, YES see a doctor - it could be a bleeding polyp or colon inflammation.
