In brief: Maybe

Aspirin causes platelet dysfunction and may lead to brain bleed but mostly in some type of trauma.

In brief: Not likely

In medicine anything can happen but it is more likely going to be a stomach bleed or prevent you from having a stroke.
The balance is in favor of taking the correct doctor recommended dose.
