See below : Internal bleeding would be bleeding inside ur body that can not be seen by ur eyes. People with thinned blood or coagulopathy ( not able to clot off) can have bleeding inside and not know it. They will b light headed and pale, if they loose enough blood. Sometimes one can c purple bruises on the outside to indicate hemorrhage but not always.
