In brief: Abcess

It sounds like you are describing a dental abcess.
A tooth or gum abcess can come to the surface and drain like a pimple. The draining helps prevent pain, but if you leave it, it can lead to a swollen face and/or lot's of pain. You need to get it checked.

In brief: See a dentist

To rule out the possibilities.
It could be your parotid duct/gland. It should not be bleeding though. Your dentist will look at it and give you more details when you are having your exam.
