Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The bleeding can occur from trauma while brushing especially in the deeper regions of your oral cavity in areas you may not be able to see. You can get a total blood count and haemoglobin. At present take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as Vitamin C deficiency can cause easy bleeding from gums. Drink plenty of water. Follow up with Haematologist if you fear blood cancer especially if it runs in family.
