Question Blood in the Stools

Off and on for some time, I have had blood in my stools. This is going to sound weird, but it has happened a few times while I am at work, especially after eating lunch. I tend to eat a lot of spicy foods, chain type foods, etc. It has happend at home sometimes as well.
I have not seen my MD as of yet, but I do plan to. I'm extremely nervous as stress is a daily part of my life (both work and personal).
I have sometimes seen a little black, and sometimes, the most recent blood on both sides (if you know what I mean). Can anyone tell me what this might be?

Thanks for listening.

It could be anything from hemorrhoids to an ulcer. Do you have any other symptoms? Pain or burning? Get to a doctor ASAP. Take care. Wish I had more help for you.
