Blood in stool concern

I am a 40 year old male. I have had blood in my stool the last couple of times I have gone. It was only a little the first time, but this last one it was more, including on toilet paper. I must add that I have had heavy stool both times that I have had to strain to push out, so I’m hoping that was the cause. After a few wipes the blood was gone. My diet hasn’t changed much other than I have cut down and have been drinking more water to try to lose weight (I am overweight). I will admit it’s also not always the healthiest eating, but I haven’t eaten anything unusual. I have been exercising more too. I I must also add that I have a large kidney stone that I have yet to be removed, but I don’t know if that can be connected. I don’t want to go to the doctor unless I absolutely have to because I plan on going out of town for a couple of weeks tomorrow. Should I be worried?
