In brief: It is not unusual

to notice small episodes of bleeding for several days after wisdom teeth surgery; simply bite on gauze again in the area of bleeding.
Actually, some bleeding after extractions is beneficial and sign of a normal healing. If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op appointment.

In brief: Call dentist

A little bit of oozing can happen, but bleeding is not normal.
Call the oral surgeon or dentist that did the extractions today to report this problem. The dentist knows your mouth and situation and can best help you. Many times they can help you over the phone even if the office is closed.
