Not the best photo but I will say that any visible lesion on your tongue that bleeds easily should definitely be seen by a dentist. Most lesions turn out to be nothing serious, so please don't panic, but it can be serious so don't delay. Smoking, alcohol are risk factors for oral cancer, but don't have to be present for issues to arise. Again, most likely harmless, but you need this checked and possibly biopsied.
