In brief: Yes, but

Not sure why you should be taking low dose aspirin given your age and gender. Look at USPSTF updated guidelines for low dose aspirin.
Unless your 10yr risk for cardiovascular event is > 10%, daily low dose aspirin is not indicated.

In brief: Yes

But it is not likely that you will derive any benefit from omega 3 at any dose.
True, it lowers triglycerides and raises HDL. But it fails to reduce cardiovascular risk. It has no benefit for arthritis or brain function. We cannot find much effect except that it increases prostate cancer. If you want to support your friendly local pill pusher keep buying fish oil. Uncoated baby aspirin reduces ski

Baby aspirin reduces skin and colon cancers, reduces blood clots in the legs, reduces strokes and reduces heart attacks. Coated aspirin is not safer but is 50% less effective. The dose is 81mg [1/4 adult dose]. No benefit at higher dose to reduce unwanted blood clots.
