Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possible causes may include Hemorrhoids,Anal fissure.

You should apply Prep H cream at opening of anus.

Use a sitz bath with warm water.
Use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper.
Take Metamucil.
Drink plenty of water.
Avoid alcohol, spicy food, fat rich food.
Avoid straining during Bowel movement.
Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Avoid long periods of sitting.
Even sitting too long, particularly on the toilet, can increase the pressure on the veins in the anus.
Do regular exercises.

If you develop recurrent episodes of bleeding then see your doctor or proctologist for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management.

I hope this helps.
