If a girl you like would randomly rant to you about stuff that bothers her, like school works, would you like it? or would it only annoy you and is a major turn off?

The key words here I think are "like" and "randomly."
From the phrasing, sounds like you also like the guy and are wondering if ranting would be a good ice-breaker, or turn him off and drive him away.
Sharing about stuff that bugs you or bad things that upset you is actually a pretty intimate act; it involves openness and trust. So sharing personal gripes with the guy out of the blue could strike him as an expression of inclusiveness on your part and therefore lead to him feel invited in to a more private part of your life. It could therefore result in him warming up to you, empathizing, commiserating, and even comforting. All nice responses, in my opinion.
You WILL turn him off though if your rant is whiny and bitter; he'll imagine you venting that way to someone someday about HIM! ;-)
So I say randomly rant away but don't be shrill and bombastic about it (unless you're being ove-the-top on purpose to be funny - just be sure you're a good enough comic that he gets the joke).2
