Dear Lunga

There could be a number of reasons why your toenail is bleeding and its best to find out exactly why before trying to treat it. There may be a lesion under the nail, abone growth, loads of different reasons and treatment would be vary from one condition to another. I would go and see a doctor/podiatrist and get a diagnosis of the problem so that treatment can be planned.
