There are so many causes of bleeding gums -
- brushing too hard
- poor oral hygiene.
- vitamin deficiency
- taking blood thinners or other medications
- bleeding or clotting disorders
- mouth sores
- other medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, leukemia or scurvy.
Few advice to stop bleeding gums--
- visit to a dentist for professional cleaning once in a year
- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth.
- floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque.
- control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress.
- rinse with salt water to keep the area clean.
- Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.

Hi, gum inflammation is the reason for bleeding and may lead to bone loss & mobile teeth. Visit a dentist for oral examination and check up and get scaling done. Brushing twice a day with soft brush in upside down fashion with alternative use of dental floss and mouthwash are required for maintaining good oral hygiene. Take care.
Ur symptoms might be suggestive of Aggressive Periodontitis, depending on ur age. In this type of disease, the pt even though maintains his oral hygiene properly, due to some immune related problems, the body's defense mechanism towards certain gum/tooth bone damaging bacteria is weaker leading to extensive damage of tooth supporting bone. Genetic factors are also a cause for this type of disease. In such situations, the pt needs to regularly get his teeth monitored as well as maintain a perfect oral hygiene. Contact ur nearest Periodontist for further help.
It's really unfortunate that you are suffering from Bleeding Gums.
I would suggest, you visit your local Dentist and get it evaluated.
You might be suffering from Periodontitis (gum disease).
A routine scaling and root planing treatment can take care of most of such issues of bleeding and discoloration of teeth. If need be, you may be asked for OPG to fend off any doubts about deeper gum infections.
Hope this gives you a fair idea of your way ahead.
If you still have any doubts, feel free to get back.
