Nose bleeding with blood clots comming out

My daughter (turns eight today) has had nose bleeds the last 2nights that seem to start out of nowhere, start slow then gush for about 20+ minutes. only from the right nostril . Last night nose bleed occured while we were at a baseball game and since we couldn t get it to stop she was evaluated by the emt. They took her blood pressure and it was 130/68.the only difference between last nights nosebleed and the one from the night befor was last night she had a couple of large clots come out during the nosebleed. itdid finally stop and we took her home. my question is what could be causing this and should i take her to an urgent care today or to her pediatricians office?
