Blood in stools - please help

Patient

Q: What should I do?? Yesterday evening I went to the toilet and when I wiped after having a poo there was quite a bit of blood. As fare as I could see there was no blood in the actual stool but when I wiped I had to do it three times to make it go. It was bright red blood with to little clotted bits of blood in it. Since that one episode last night I have not had and blood in the Stool or when wipping. But around my hole is very red and sore. But know sine of blood. I also have a sore stomach, but I think that may be because my husband has packed me by saying its cancer its cancer!! Wich has automatically made my insides panicked. I can't remember staring but it's highly likely that I did, I did not have any pains before this insadent or soreness. I'm just a little conserend now. And I can't see a doctor unlit next week at my surgery. HELP PLEASE ADVISE WOULD BE GRATE.
