Hi there,This can be scary but most often a benign harmless cause.Can be due to the external ear canal trauma.Eardrum rupture is another possible cause.Sometimes a cyst from the canal lining can burst open causing bleeding.Less commonly, this can be due to the brain hemorrhage which usually causes severe headache as well.Please do get it checked by your doctor.If the bleeding is continuous then you should go to the local hospital.You can clean the blood gently with cotton wisp.

You can clean the ear with diluted peroxide solution. Best wishes
