Thanks for your question.
This shouldn't be an embarrasing medical question. Indeed, bleeding from the rectum (or anus) could result from something as minor as hemorrhoids. However, because there are some more serious medical conditions that can cause rectal bleeding, I'd advise you to have your doctor check things out. Good luck. BY
