In brief: No need to panic

Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin.
Although this amount of bleeding may be alarming, many times the injury is not severe and the bleeding will stop with treatment you can do at home. Apply steady pressure for 15 minutes, this should stop it.
