Usually not: If you have bloody nipple discharge, that needs medical evaluation, and most commonly is related to a growth on the lining of a milk duct. If there is bloody drainage from the incision made on the skin to drain the pus, that is perfectly normal until it heals.

Not sure of your ?: I am not sure exactly what you are asking. A breast abscess can bleed.
