Blood in semen is also called Hematospermia. In most cases it is idiopathic, which means no obvious cause is found. Hematospermia usually resolve by itself in few days. Some known causes are prostate infection or inflammation, epididymitis, excessive sex/masturbation or interrupted sex, injury, bleeding disorders, biopsy, prostate stones, polyps etc. In rare cases, blood in semen can be caused by tumor or cancer.

If this is your first occurrence and there are no other symptoms, then only observation for few days is required. If you have pain, burning urination, fatigue, swelling etc, then you should be seen. Also if the bleeding persists for longer than few days, you should be seen.
