Is my rectal bleeding a sign of ulcerative colitis?

I've been experiencing rectal bleeding for about 10 months now with bits of mucus. I'm 20 years old and had a colonoscopy a few months ago and the results came back as inflammation in the rectum but I was not diagnosed with UC.

The rectal bleeding is the only symptom of UC I have apart from the obvious inflammation. I am just wondering if anyone else's UC started with just bleeding and no other symptoms?
