There are a variety of both benign and malignant conditions that can cause painless rectal bleeding. However, rather than guessing at what might be causing your rectal bleeding, you should see your doctor, instead, and ask him/her to refer you to a Gastroenterologist, so that you can undergo a colonoscopy.
