In brief: Get it checked.

An infection may be the cause of naval bleeding – especially if there is discharge, pain or odor. A second cause for bleeding can be trauma.
A frequent scenario is when someone sticks their finger in their umbilicus to search for “lint” and they scratch or abrade the skin.
