She may simple be in heat although it's uncommon to see blood because the fastidious cat cleans the vaginal area frequently. Alternatively, you're seeing the discharge of a pyometra - an infected uterus although the discharge is usually purulent (pusy) with or without blood. A vet can differentiate one scenario from the other but the most cost effective approach is to simply have her spayed. Pyometra can be life-threatening.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
