Some of Time on paper ,other times back side of movement,sometime s not at all. Once looked liked like jelly on Brown,started last two weeks

This pattern of bleeding sounds to be possibly coming from hemorrhoids. But anything in the colon can cause bleeding as well such as polyps. The only way to find out is to see your doctor for an exam. They may need to have you get a colonoscopy done as well to see where the blood is coming from. Hope this helps.
