In brief: Nose bleeds

It is unlikely that congestive heart failure causes nose bleeds, more likely oxygen that is often used in heart failure patients and dries out the nasal passages causes the nosebleeds.

In brief: Yes,

Yes, that is important and the patient needs to be evaluated, especially if the patient is on any types of blood thinners.
It would be important also to be sure the patient isn't anemic. This is especially important as this is a potential heart transplant patient. This patient should call their doctor and arrange evaluation for their nose bleeds.
