I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please?

If concurrent with an enlarged and firm vulva, her bleeding would indicate the initial stage of her estrus cycle called proestrus. This is when male dogs will be attracted to her but she wouldn't stand for breeding. Proestrus has an average length of 9 days with a range of 0 -17 days.

If, instead, she had a heat 1-3 months ago and there's pus admixed in the blood, purulent endometriosis (pyometra) is present and she would need the attetnion of her vet at your earliest convenience. These dogs are quite ill, however - inappetent and drinking excessively.
