Thanks for writing to us.
A fresh red colored bleeding with pain will indicate the torn stitches. Since you are passing a black colored blood now, you need not worry. Doing a cold compress in the area will help in stopping the local bleeding if there is any.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
