I am a bodybuilder and is taking up Andriol Testocaps for a while now. Recently, my feces has blood stains on it. Nothing is aching though. It is just alarming that there is blood in my feces and now with my urine too.

Blood in the stool can come from several reasons. It may be a colonic polyp that has become irritated and bleeding, hemorrhoids that are bleeding, or irritation of the lining from an infection such as a viral gastroenteritis or bacterial gastroenteritis.
Given that you are seeing blood in your stool and urine I would recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor to be sure that your clotting factors, etc. are OK as well as look for any other possible causes.
