Bleeding tongue: Take a tea bag, wet it and use it to apply pressure for 15-30 minutes (or dry sterile gauze pad) on the bleeding site. If it is still a problem you will need to see your dentist (and possibly your physician to check your BP and clotting time).

Trauma?: If it's due to trauma, I'd give it time - nothing you described is worrisome. If there hasn't been any trauma, an evaluation is indicated.
