I would recommend you follow up with your obstetrician. It may be that your tear for the birth has come open some and is bleeding. It may also be that you have a small tear (called an anal fissure) in the rectum causing the bleeding.
If the tear is large enough it may need some sutures to repair it. If it is small, stool softeners may be sufficient to allow the tear to heal.
