In brief: Don't panic

Bleeding is normal after an extraction, in your case if you did not keep the pressure on the wound the blood swept forward, the good news it coagulated and stopped.
just wipe it of the teeth and be careful. Call your dentist if you are still bleeding.

In brief: Look for pain

Kind of gross but not clinically significant.
If you begin to have pain or discomfort on day 3 you need to return to the dentist for treatment of dry socket. This can happen if the clot from a socket is lost prematurely

In brief: "liver clot"

Forms when the extraction site is still bleeding but at a very slow rate.
Rarely reforms. However if does continue, place light pressure on the site with some damp gauze or packing the dentist office gave you or a damp tea bag. Too long and too much pressure will cause a new problem so don't get carried away. An hour should do it.If it continues call and see your surgeon for a post op visit.

In brief: It is not abnormal

When you have tooth extraction, you bleed and the blood will form clot, that the normal way, but that will stop after that.
If it did not stop, you have to see your doctor.
