Maybe: Where are you bleeding from? If it was a subcutaneous or intramuscular injection, slight bleeding or a bruise at the site is not unusual. If you are bleeding from your gums, nose, in your urine or your bowel movements, this requires urgent evaluation.

Abnormal platelets: Individuals with polycythemia (an acquired disorder of the bone marrow that causes an abnormal increase in all three blood cell types: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets) have an increased tendency to form blood clots that can result in strokes or heart attacks. Some people also have abnormal bleeding because their platelets (responsible for clotting) are abnormal.

No, but...: ...It is not uncommon to cause bleeding when placing a chest tube. This rarely would require a blood transfusion or any surgical intervention. An alternative cause of bleeding may be the process that led to the need for the chest tube to begin with. For example, it is very common to have a hemothorax (blood in chest) along with a pneumothorax following chest trauma.
