Hi Anon and thanks for this post.
The answer to your question is 'yes' - there shouldn't be any noticeable bleeding during or after anal sex.
Always stop the intercourse if you experience sharp pain that doesn't subside within a few moments, of if your partner notices any blood. It is possible that your partner was a bit rough, that you weren't sufficiently relaxed via foreplay or that you weren't using enough high-quality lubrication. Anal bleeding after unsafe sex (without a condom and lashings of water-based lube) is very worrying and you need to seek urgent medical attention A.S.A.P. in order to gain access to PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis, which has been discussed before on the forum). PEP must be commenced within a max of 72 hours after possible exposure to the HI virus.
Even if the sex was safe, if the bleeding isn't merely mild or if it is accompanied by any sense of pain or discomfort that lasts beyond a few hours, seek medical attention.
