In brief: Yes

Palpitations should prompt you to go to the er, regardless of the rest of your story.
The nosebleed may be a problem or not, as it is common with this time of year. Blood thinners matter, however, and you do not mention those.

In brief: Check blood pressure

This is not the site to decide if should go to the er. You should call your doctor who knows the patient.
