Depends : The age of your son, the amount of blood and whether there is associated swelling or pain around the site affect whether the cause is likely to be more serious. It may be as simple as a bite inside the belly button he has been scratching and causing to bleed. A quick discussion with his doctor's office can help determine if he needs to be seen or just carefully watched.
