Can you tell me if it's fine if my 2 week old baby bleeds from her umbilical cord just a little bit?

In brief: Pretty common

These are somewhat like a simple sore that can reopen and bleed a little until it finally heals.
We often see this soon after the main stump separates.Just keep it clean and dry as you would any scratch and it should heal fine.
