Dear friend,
I guess you should first wait for the complete investigations to be over as one cannot tell from these symptoms or investigations whether you have pancreatic cancer or not. Best is to investigate further in form of CT abdomen with contrast and know what is causing abdominal bleeding
do let me know if you have any more questions.
