Bloody stools alone can be a symptom of hemorrhoids, although these do not typically cause pain in the stomach. Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be very painful but is generally associated with constipation/diarrhea, and mucosy stools.
The blood could be caused by some sort of gastrointestinal bleeding. This means somewhere between your throat (esophagus), your stomach, your intestines, and your rectum there is a problem. This could be an ulcer. This could be inflammation of the colon. It could be a number of things.
Your doctor would more than likely feel (palpate looking for signs of point-specific pain, if the abdomen has areas of "hardness" when it is supposed to be soft, etc.) your abdomen, and likely want a stool/urine sample. From there, depending on what is found you may need to get a scan of your abdomen such as an X-ray or an ultrasound. Neither of these are painful.
Again- this could be something as simple as needing an antacid or an antibiotic. But blood in stool should never be ignored.

Okay no one here will be able to give you a definate answer to that unless we have a qualified doctor amongst us.
But to me (im not trying to frighten you)but that definately doesnt sound right.
It could be nothing..it could be something your best bet is to go to your doctor imediately and get it checked out.
Taking an educated guess it sounds like it could be something to do with your bowels.
My advice would be to get it seen to straight away (:
sorry I Cant tell you exactly whats wrong
best of luck
