Saw blood in my stool (TMI)?

I just finished having a bowel movement and that a piece of my stool had a ring of blood around the end of it? There was no blood in the toilet paper and there was no blood in the water. I am not on my period either. I don’t have any pain and I don’t feel any hemorrhoids. Should I be concerned? 

Attached is a crude drawing I made of it. I’m not an artist.

    It's likely an anal fissure. Blood from a problem in the colon turns the feces black. Fresh blood is external. Take a mirror and look before spending big bucks. Use antibiotic ointment or vaseline.

    Have a tele visit with your doctor, if you feel any pain anywhere go to ER.

    good luck :)
