Hi Holly and welcome back!

There have been only a few times, in our earlier hatches, where we helped the chick out of the egg. In all these cases, there were problems with the bird -- splayed leg or unhealthy in some way. We never had any bleeding, though. Then we learned the importance of just letting the chick hatch on its own. In your case, it's hard to say. Definitely keep the humidity up, because the chick's feet and legs are going to get curled in the egg. I would be tempted to help him out, but the bleeding worries me. And because of that, I would probably leave the chick alone and let nature take its course.

Anyone else out there with a better idea?
