In brief: Bleeding disorder
While i hope that dr. Bansal's assessment is correct i agree that dr. Villaplana's concerns need to be addressed.
It really depends on what you mean by "every morning". If this problem has been present for years then you probably have gingivitis. If the problem began a few weeks ago i would be concerned about leukemia. Please see your doctor very soon for assessment and reassurance.

In brief: Gingivitis
You have gingivitis.
This is a result of inadequate dental hygiene, technique, and follow up with your dentist. Go to your dentist to get examined and treated accordingly.

In brief: Seems very abnormal!
Have you thought about maybe seeing a physician that may be able to diagnose the problem and hopefully fix it?
