2 weeks is a long time. Apply ice cubes and warm saltwater rinses. Do visit your dentist if it's possible for a checkup to be on safe side

If dentist is not nearby, drink cold water or put ice there to stop the bleeding. Take care of oral hygeine, as the gum area there is already swollen. Do warm saline rinses 4-5 times a day, a day after bleeding stops. If you are still facing the problem, consult your dentist.
