In brief: Maybe
Frequent nose bleeds are not common.
If you are taking Aspirin or Ibuprofen type products frequently, this may affect how your platlets adhere to each other and may increase your risk of nasal bleeding. You may also have a deviated septum - the middle part of the nose. Frequent nose bleeds should be evaluated. See your local ent.

In brief: Maybe
Bloody noses are pretty common & are usually the result of fairly benign processes.
In kids trauma (ie nose-picking) is a common cause. In adults allergies often play a role. Dry weather can contribute. If you take a blood thinner (such as aspirin) that can increase your chances. More serious conditions exist too. Try using some saline gel (ayr makes some) & talk to your doc. Tx is often simple.
