With they symptoms you are describing, red stains upon having bowel movements and lightheadedness you need to be evaluated by your doctor/ER. You are likely having a GI bleed, this can be due to any number of things such as hemorrhoids, fistula, infection, inflammation, malignancy. The lightheadedness is likely from blood loss. You will require blood work as well as a colonoscopy. So please do not delay, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
