In brief: See a dentist
Evan mildly bleeding gums with brushing can indicate a disease call periodontitis, which left untreated can lead to tooth loss.
It may be other things as well, but gum disease is by far the most common. I would recommend seeing a dentist as it will probably get worse until you do.

In brief: Soft brush
Use a soft brush, brush lightly including the gums even if they bleed, and use floss.
Over time, they will stop bleeding. Make sure to follow up with your dentist.
