In brief: It could be.

Deviated septums can cause unequal airflow through the nose.
If more air flows through the wider passage, you can get drying of the mucus membranes more on that side. Deviated septums also cause turbulent airflow which also causes more drying of the mucus membranes. Solutions for the problem include saline irrigations or other humidifying medical treatments versus surgery to remove the deviation.

In brief: Nosebleed

You may have an irritated area on the septum. Have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
