Anything that appears abnormal should be checked out- having blood in your poop, is certainly abnormal. There are too many possible complications for me to list- but that could be a sign of a potentially serious condition. The only person that can diagnose your symptoms is the doctor. So, don't be shy, and don't hold back. Go tell your parents- it might seem embarrassing, but it really isn't; they are only there to help you. Definitely see the doctor right away- they might have to do a couple tests, and probably even take a sample of your stool. This could be nothing at all, or a sign of some sort of infection, for example. No body on any internet site can diagnose anything. You will have to first let your parents know, and then go with them to the doctor's office to get everything checked out. Best of luck.
* To add, some of the major signs of an infection or illness presents itself in your urine or feces (pee or poop, just to not sound so much like a doctor, haha), which is why doctor's sometimes ask patients if they have noticed anything while going to the bathroom. So, please get this checked out right away- the doctor, if needed, can prescribe medication or antibiotics, or let you know what, if anything, needs to be done.
(a few years ago, i had to stay in the hospital for a week, after having my appedix removed (it burst, and there was a big infection)...the doctors and nurses tested my pee and poop literally every day, and monitored any changes. Just to let you know how important it is for your pee and poop to appear normal). [ ciao77's advice column | Ask ciao77 A Question ]
