I got my wisdom teeth out Wednesday morning, and one of my stitches already came out. There is light bleeding, should I be concerned?

In brief: Not Necessarily

The bleeding may have come from the sutures pulling out through the gingiva, not from the extraction site itself.
Place a sterile gauze over the site and bite gently for 15 minutes. Repeat as needed. Do not gargle,. Call your surgeon if pain or swelling begins.
