Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your worry is obvious! There is obvious mistake in your writing...Blood pressure ought to be 140/100 (not 100/140 as you have said – the upper figure is systolic and must be higher).

DO NOT worry.
The pressure is not very high. Bleeding is unlikely at this level. The common cause is from the Little’s plexus – capillary network in the septum of nose / precipitated by a local cause like picking of the nose! And so on.

You should first see Ear Nose Throat specialist.

Re-check pressure. See an Internist for further follow up

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
