In brief: No
There are many types of bleeding disorders.
Factor deficiencies are only one type. Hemophilia is factor 8 deficiency or factor 9 deficiency. There are platelet disorders as well which cause bleeding.

In brief: Not necessarily
There are many causes for bleeding disorders, hemophilia is one of many.
Your doctor can begin the evaluation but you may need to see a hematologist for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Bleeding disorders can be congenital or acquired. Usually a bleeding disorder indicates a dysfunction and/or deficit with clotting factors and/or platelets. Consult your doctor.
