Bleeding from belly button, no pain in surrounding areas, soreness. Cause of worry?

Hi. I m a 22 yr old woman. 5 3, and about 220 pounds. I felt kinda odd in my stomach this morning when i got up. I got out of the shower, and was drying off when I noticed my belly button was bleeding . Not like gushing, but like leaking I guess. No pain in any other surrounding areas. It s kinda sore near my belly button now. What is this? Is this even normal?

Thank you for the query.

Such symptom can be caused by persistent urachus, which connects fetal cord with fetal urinary bladder. Usually it degenerates after a birthday, however in some cases it does not. It gives discharges from the belly button and urinary tract infections.
In some cases umbilical hernia can give such symptoms as well.
It is advisable for you to have abdominal ultrasound to have it checked. Urine analysis is advisable as well.

Hope this will help.
