I had 2 Stool tests to detect blood in stool

I had 2 Stool tests to detect blood in stool but both the time the results came negative but after passing the stool every day i feel like i can see some reddish substances in the stool. What they can be if they are not blood?

I am eating Papaya and watermelon everyday.

My guess would be something you're eating or a combination of foods.
I get it with beets.

Watermelon can cause that, especially if you are not fully digesting food. Anything that is red can do that too.....

but is there any way to differentiate between blood or any other red substances in the stool? (Without a Pathological test)

I stopped eating Papaya and red jam for one day and today morning I did not see any reddish stuff in the stool. Today also I am avoiding all red color foods. I am hoping it happened because of food only. Really worried. I will let you guys know tomorrow. Thanks for your support.
