Hello and thanks for query.
I understand your concern and will try my best to address your concern.
It seems that your concussion has probably no role in your nose bleed because of two reasons
First, you had this head injury two weeks before.
Second, you have history of similar bleeds from nose even before your head injury.

Considering the fact that you are not having any high blood pressure and any other disease,the reasons for your nose bleed could be the aspirin you take as a blood thinner. The other common reasons include:
Because of dry air in your area which can cause your nasal membranes dry and crack.
Habitual nose poking can cause nose bleed.
A temperature change suddenly from outside wintery conditions to warm atmosphere in your house.

A pressure with cotton for 5 minutes should stop it. You may breathe through mouth then

You must consult your doctor for the cause and treatment if problem doesn't resolve or worsens with the above nose pinch.

I hope to have answered your query however you can revert to me for any further query.

Thanks and wish you best of luck.
