This is not a withdrawal condition.
Bleeding from gums is commonly due to local inflammation - probably due to infection.

This can happen due to any viral or bacterial infection.
It may also occur due to some minor trauma.

Test are needed if the bleeding is severe and accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, fever, swelling and so on.
It might also cause delayed healing.
At this point, physical examination of the gums is definitely useful.

Rinse with cold water. This will also help.
Let me assure you.
I agree with you that bleeding may not be entirely from the gums.
Inflammation of any structure in the oral cavity may bleed
as inflammed tissues are friable.
A physical examination by a doctor can confirm the site of bleeding.
And as mentioned earlier, the cause is usually inflammation, vitamin deficiencies, medications and rarely due to some hematological conditions.
no need to worry types
if the bleeding is not severe and there are no other symptoms
we can wait and watch for a few days.
Avoid any spicy diet,
Avoid trauma by using soft bristles.
We can also try using some antiseptic mouth gargles such as chlorhexidine
to take care of any minor infections.
They should settle.
Avoid any medications that contain aspirin.
Avoid using painkillers.
