Dark blood comes from the veins, brighter blood is arterial.

Re: what does it mean if your blood is a dark red

If you are dumb enought to smoke, that might be the cause. In that case dark red is the result of elevated hemoglobin... your body's attempt to compensate for the smoke. I had that for years before I quit.
.
But there are a lot of other possible causes too. A visit to your doc is probably the best way to ease your mind.
