Introducing solids- giving a baby a taste of solid food here and there to get her used to new tastes and textures- is not the same as trying to get her to eat large meals of solid food and replacing breastmilk in her diet.
I wouldn't be afraid to introduce some solids, but I also wouldn't stress and start trying to spoon your LO full of cereal! Especially since I don't think that your baby's issues with bloody stools are likely to improve just because you've started solids. I've never heard that formed poop results in less intestinal irritation/bleeding.
