Bleeding+Dizzy:Ding!: Sounds like you need to see a doctor.Usually turns out to be no biggy but if this is new for you and you're getting light-headed it may mean that you're losing a bit too much blood.There are a lot of details that would need to be sorted-out in person.Of course,if by now things have settled down and if there is no pain you could wait a bit.If you do decide to go to a doctor,have someone drive you
