In brief: Question?
Not sure what the question is you are asking.
However, this can happen. Doesn't necessarily mean anything bad but it can certainly hurt. You may need to consider some type of compression socks/hose.

In brief: Varicose veins
This sounds like a varicose vein that has ruptured.
You need to have an evaluation by a vascular specialist. This should be treated as the bleeding and ulceration can be a chronic problem.
