Urgent care will be able to help.
It could just be hemorrhoids.
Or, you may have an anal fissure which is a tear in your rectum - not uncommon with people who experience constipation because the trying to force to go to the bathroom can make a tear.
Both of these can be diagnosed with a rectal exam (no need for a colonoscopy).

if your stools is hard and big it will cause cut and tearing to the rectum and also you might have internal hemorrhoid. You need to eat food that soften the stools and there are some medicine that can help on that.
I am not a dr. or nurse so this is just from my own experience. I had internal hemorrhoids long before I ever experienced any type of rectal pain or anything. You can have internal hemorrhoids & they are not painful really but on occasion they will bleed even though you have not been constipated lately. When you sit down it puts pressure on them & causes them to bleed. This is not something I would normally tell but just so you wont be freaking out im going to tell you, sometimes the water would be completely red & look like I was going to bleed to death or something. It is just because that is what they do, they fill with blood & then when you sit on toilet the pressure makes them bleed. If you are constipated alot it will cause you to have them so if you don't have them externally yet you need to start taking something or eat lots of fiber so your not so constipated. Take it from me if that is what it is, I had to have a hemroidectomay & I would rather have 10 kids by c-section than to ever have to go threw that again.I have a very high pain tolerance & that surgery is the worst & most painful to heal from that I know of. Soaking in a bath tub of water as hot as you can stand it can help & you might try preparation H internally or preparation H suppositories will help some also. Good Luck & remember this is just what my problem was when I had rectal bleeding & I do not have any dr. or nursing license.

I agree with other people here. Constipation causes haemorrhoids (I am in UK so spell it differently). If it is that kind of bleeding it should stop soon. And sometimes, you can have constipation but the haemorrhoids don't bleed until a week or so later - and it's painless. (Weird, huh?!) What colour is the blood? If it's a tomato colour it probably isn't too serious but if it's dark, it could be. You would feel better if you could see a doctor about it but it doesn't sound as if it's too urgent. Just as soon as you can. Put your mind at ease, anyway.

Most of the time, treatment for hemorrhoids involves steps that you can take on your own, such as lifestyle modifications. Learn here https://tr.im/rWMNO
But sometimes medications or surgical procedures are necessary. If your hemorrhoids produce only mild discomfort, your doctor may suggest over-the-counter creams, ointments, suppositories or pads. These products contain ingredients, such as witch hazel or hydrocortisone, that can relieve pain and itching, at least temporarily.
Don't use an over-the-counter cream or other product for more than a week unless directed by your doctor. These products can cause side effects, such as skin rash, inflammation and skin thinning.

You probably have anal fissures or hemorrhoids caused by constipation. A web search for "rectal bleeding" includes other and more serious possibilities.
Constipation and the runs often occur together and these can be symptoms of IBS.
Constipation is often due to an unhealthy diet with insufficient fiber.
Most people don't eat enough fiber.
Wheat germ, wheat bran, Chia seeds and Psyllium husks are very high fiber foods and there is also a lot of fiber in fruit and vegetables.
Both constipation and IBS as well as diarrhea can be cured with liquid chlorophyll as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22l...
Other natural ways to relieve constipation are covered in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n...
