Go to Urgent Care: Get her to an Urgent Care or ER if the fluid is more than a tiny ooze whether or not it's blood. As an elderly woman of unknown medical condition, this could be a serious and correctable issue. So, go. If it's not necessary - ask for ways you can better evaluate this decision in the future. Thanks for being a good grandchild! Best!
