Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting you query.
If you had bleeding during intercourse then it may be due to a coital injury to your foreskin. It may be due to forcible intercourse or due to less lubrication or due to faulty insertion.
If abstain from sex for a week or so the it will heal spontaneously and you can resume sex after complete healing.

Another possibility is an yeast infection where minute cracks or splits will be there over foreskin and you may likely having burning sensation and itching also. One of the picture shows inflammation of your foreskin may be due to infection or due to irritation of external applications like soap, antiseptic creams etc.
Consult your dermatologist or physician, they will guide you and treat the problem.
It is not a big issue and you will be alright within another few days.
