In brief: Evaluation needed

You shouldn't try to treat gum bleeding without a a clear diagnosis.
It may be gingivitis (and this is not trivial). It could also reflect more systemic bleeding problems. Either way, you need a diagnosis, and probably intervention. If there are no other signs of easy bleeding, start with a good dental evaluation, then if more answers are needed, see a good internist.

In brief: Hygiene

Get to your dentist for a good cleaning and maybe they can show you a better way to brush and floss.
Then do it right every day. If an area bleeds don't stop cleaning it, or it will continue to have inflammation and cont to bleed each time you brush or floss.
