Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Is there any pus draining from there. You could be having congenital depression in the skin or pilonidal sinus which is infection and causing the bleeding and pus formation. You should keep the area clean and dry and consult a Surgeon to get examined thoroughly and get appropriate treatment.
