Hello! bleeding from gums could be because of deposits on your teeth. Visit your dentist and get a deep scaling done. Brush twice a day and rinse after every meal and floss regularly.

The photographs that you have posted are unclear and quite dark..... but bleeding from the gums is a clinical sign of gum inflammation..... your friend should visit a dentist for a proper chemical examination...... most likely a session of teeth cleaning will be required followed by a guidance about proper brushing technique to maintain the best gum health in the future.....
Regards....

Hello, I can see mild inflammation in gums. Professional scaling is required. The other reasons include faulty toothbrushing, deficiency of Vitamin C. I will advise the patient to visit a dentist nearby, preferably a periodontist.

Good evening, Sorry for the late response, it doesn't look like it would be a matter of concern but there maybe several underlying factors responsible for bleeding gums including a vitamin c deficiency. It would be better if she visits a dentist as a clinical examination is important to eliminate things that can't be seen clearly on the images. Also a routine cleaning would be recommended to get rid of the plaque and calculus to enhance the general oral health care. Have a biting fit day!
