Blood on pillow in morning

Question:

Hi, For about the last 4-5 months, I have been waking up with small amounts of blood on my pillow (dark red or almost brown). When I look at my tongue in the morning it has a dark red stripe down the middle. Should I be concerned. I don`t seem to have any major dental problems although my teeth do bleed sometimes when I brush my teeth. thank you.
