Sandra, there are several possible causes that would lead to a bloody discharge from the penis in Trevor. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination. But, common causes are: Bladder stones, urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), prostate/kidney disease or an infection. To determine the exact cause your family veterinarian will need to do xrays and urinalysis as initial screening test. As long as he is playing and behaving normal it is not an emergency but he should be seen by family veterinarian. If he stops urinating or is unable to urinate then that would be an emergency; it implies that he may have a stone blocking the outflow of urine. But, as long as he is urinating and behaving normal he will be ok. Make certain he has plenty of water. Follow up with family veterinarian, treatment will be based on exam and test results.
