It usually just means your stool is too big. You've been pushing out such large pieces that your intestines can't handle it and actually burst and bleed a little bit when you have to poop. You need more fiber. This will loosen up your stools so you can go to the bathroom easier.

Blood clots in stool show that there is ulcer in the stomach. Food being taken in irregular intervals and that contains excessive oil are major reasons for ulcer.
