I'm a little worried...

Hey all, this is my first time posting here, and i must admit, i seem a little trivial with all these complex procedural questions, but i'm worried nonetheless.

first off, I'm 17 years old, slight build, weigh about 120 lbs, height around 5'8".

recently, i've noticed some slight streaking blood on the toilet paper after a bowel movement. that's all there is, no other bleeding or blood in the bowl, just a little on the toilet paper. also, this is a little inconsistent, it sometimes goes away, and sometimes is there.

prior to these last 2 or 3 weeks, this hadn't happened at all ever before, so i'm a little worried.

i'm thinking it could be what i'm eating, i'm at summer camp so my diet has changed from what it normally is. i usually eat quite a lot of meat, but with a nice balance of vegetable fiber in there as well. it seems to me that i'm not eating enough fiber, but since i've noticed this problem, i've been trying to eat more vegetables, usually broccoli or some sort of salad at every meal. despite this, though, the blood still persists.

i'm a little worried about this.

any suggestions at all would be really helpful, thanks in advance everyone!
