In brief: Gingivitis
This could represent an infection of your gums, or gingivitis.
If that is what you have, you may need antibiotics, in addition to continuing to brush your teeth regularly, starting to floss, and adding the use of a good antiseptic mouthwash like listerine may help. Go and see your dentist for an evaluation asap.
