It is possible that you have small piles or a small mucosal tare of the anus. If the blood is of concern, I suggest that you consult your doctor for a rectal examination and a proctoscopy, as well as a colonoscopy. In the interim, you can apply Anusol cream in combination with Anusol suppositries. This medication is available over the counter.
