Hemorrhoids would be a common cause of anal bleeding...

You may have other less common causes such an AV malformation( direct artery to vein )

Erosions of the colon or rectum wall would be possible....

Bleeding from a diverticula may cause ...

A rectal or colon cancer would be a potential concern...

So it is advised that you see your doctor / gastroenterologist for evaluation to determine the cause in your case ...
