Hello

I do not know what question you are asking so I will guess at an answer.

Any new such bleeding needs an exam from your doctor.

Possible causes are

hemorrhoids

anal fissure

diverticulosis

another colon lesion such as a polyp

Other problems.

Some are serious.

If you are continuously bleeding go to A&E, don't wait for an appointment.

It's bright red and more of a leak than gushing blood

Ok

Most likely internal hemorrohoids, but all above are possible.
