Brief Answer:
Subungual mole is likely

Detailed Answer:

In case of no trauma and injury the chances of it being a mole is likely. It would be good if you can photograph and upload it here.

Hemorrhage resolves on its own in a week, watch for resolving size. If not then it is a mole itself.

Hope this helps.
