 wisdom teeth removed - started bleeding again

I had two wisdom teeth (upper&lower left) removed last tuesday
morning. Everything went fine - the bleeding stopped after just over
an hour, never felt any pain whatsoever...  
However, this morning (it is now friday) I noticed a little {*filter*} when
I (still very gently) brushed my teeth. Right now (friday evening) it
is still bleeding - just a little bit ! - but I don't feel any pain or
even discomfort.  The gums around the "holes" look OK, not red or
irritated or whatever.

Is this a problem? I mean: should I fear infection of gums or jaw if
the bleeding doesn't stop? Should I contact my dentist? Or is there
anything I can do - maybe press the wounds again with a compress or
tampon. (I know: no drinking & smoking)

pls shine your light.
greetings,
Viktor

Better to be a do-gooder than a good do-er!

That's very normal.  Nothing to worry about.
