If it's bright red, I think you're probably correct in assuming it is your hemmies. If the bleeding was further into your system it would darken your stool, but very little (if any) would reach the toilet that bright of a red. Hopefully an expert will come along and verify that...

I would probably still get it checked out if it's never happened before, just to make sure that it is indeed the hemmies and nothing else hiding just out of sight. I wouldn't worry, but I would make an appointment soon just to be safe.
