In brief: Potentially

Any of a dozen inherited clotting disorders could cause you to get nose bleeds.

In brief: Hydration

The best way to treat it is to use saline spray several times during the day, use vaseline just inside the nostrils at night, drink lots of fluids, humdifier. If this doesn't fix it, then you should have some blood work and have your blood pressure checked (high blood pressure can cause nosebleeds).
In rare instances, there are diseases that run in families that cause this, but not for most people.

In brief: Probably not

Nose bleeds are common and nearly everyone gets one sometime in their life.
Predisposing factors include, dry weather, trauma, allergy, viral infection, chemicals, smoke, impaired clotting, and rarely tumors. Aspirin increases the risk for a week after a single dose.
